Frameform | Fabricating Identities: Costumes & Characters

Costumes transform a subject -- instantly creating a character, a personality, or a mood for the screen. The sheets of fabric, material, or in some cases sculpted masterpieces, take the shape to the character’s storyline, portraying a larger role to the picture. In today’s discussion, we will take a closer look at some exquisite examples of imaginative costumes, how they are structuring the dance landscape, and uncovering the physical and metaphorical layers they leave behind. Alongside our weekly roundtable, Jen sits down with fellow Vancouver filmmaker, Rodrigo Rocha-Campos, discussing his personal filmmaking interests and practices, while also taking a deeper look at his costume trilogy, A Full Circle.

2020

A unique year called for a unique plan. For our 2020 program,
we 
hosted live events and offered online options as well.

Our home theater for Cascadia, Vancouver International Film Centre, began renovations before the pandemic and we look forward to returning in the future, however we are saddened that we, for the first time in 7 years, did not host any events in Dancinema's home city.

We had a LIVE sold out event at our Washington, D.C.

theatre of choice: Eaton Cinema at Eaton Workshop.
We practiced social distancing, masking, and had a happy and safe time. Especially after the shifts of the pandemic, we appreciated seeing these films in a communal and cinematic setting.
