Play A Starring Role In CASCADIA’s Success!

Women whose voices and visions are heard and seen help change the world. CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival debuted April 20-23, 2017 in beautiful Bellingham, Washington. Your gifts promote the artistry and vision of women filmmakers by presenting exceptional films from aspiring and established women directors from around the world, inspire young artists with educational forums, director panels, script reading critiques, and complementary activities with community partners and affiliates.

You, your group, organization or business can also play a role in the festival by sponsoring our festival, an upcoming educational event or one of our incredible films. You may also place an ad in a future program or donate to our swag bags. Contact us to discuss the opportunities.
