Cadence is a horror feature film that was made in BC for VIFF 2016 on October 3 at the Rio. Written and directed by local filmmaker, Alex Lasheras, his film debut features a cast of established upcoming local Vancouver actors and a creative collaborative crew that is entirely Canadian. The film focuses on subjects like imagination and self identity, as Alex wanted to try something new, which would be entertaining and challenging to the audience.
“If you love films with good twists, come see this movie. It will keep you guessing to the very end.”
Raised in Langley on a farm, with no cable tv, Lasheras recalls how he once went to Vancouver and watched a foreign film after he got his driver’s license. Lasheras attended a film program at UBC and then another at Vancouver Film School. Now his film Cadence is now in the spotlight with nine other films in this year’s BC IGNITE series, which is a collaboration with Telus and VIFF, showcasing local talent.
