Festival - Cadence Video Poetry Festival 2022 [Hybrid]

This showcase stares mortality in the eye and offers a poem as effigy to life, death, and love. A contemporary investigation into sacred love kindles the intensity spread across these works. From a fantastical color-saturated portrait of the legendary poet Lorca to an uncredited photograph of domestic life in 1930s Budapest, these video poems are lessons in keeping the flame alive across cultures and time.

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Executive Director Vivian Hua at vivian@nwfilmforum.org
