Sans Souci film festival in Boulder embraces live performance
Curatorial Criteria: We're interested in film and video works that integrate dance and cinematography. When choosing works for exhibition and installation we consider thoughtful forms and themes, investigative / innovative / experimental approaches, choreographic creativity, virtuosic performance, production values, audience appeal, and program fit. None of these criteria is a must; none is more important than the others; excellence in any one or two areas may be sufficient for acceptance. Shorts are preferred. Documentaries and animations will be considered. Note that we are not interested in simple recordings of dance on a proscenium stage — cinematic elements must be an integral part of the entry.
Film, Video, Camera, Cinema?
We thought about calling ourselves a Dance Film Festival, a Video Dance Festival, a Dance Video Festival, a ScreenDance Festival, or a Dance for Camera Festival but we settled on Festival of Dance Cinema because that seems to cover the bases best.
