Have a look at nginx's support for the X-Accel-Redirect header.
Your Dancer app returns a response with this header set which nginx then
(internally) redirects to the local file rather than than stuffing the
file content into Dancer's response.
A quick Google search shows up a Catalyst advent calendar entry that
should give an overview of how this works;
Hope that helps,
