Orit Schwartz, Festival Director, said,
“We’re selling tickets earlier than ever this year and anticipate a great response from members and the general public. Buzz has been building about our films and parties, including the resurgence of a dance party, which will be held at our newest venue, the Cascade Theatrical Company, on Friday night of the festival featuring DJ Bryan Swett.”
