Responding to Covid-19

Sans Souci is first and foremost a film festival, and like all other film festivals right now, we're re-evaluating possibilities of taking future events online. Official determinations for screenings as part of our Fall 2020 season will be announced as soon as they have firmed up, and in the mean time, we'll stay busy curating the record number of submissions we got this year! We're also still in the midst of re-planning our Community Dance Film Project, so stay tuned for more info on that as well. In the mean time, keep busy, make art, and wash your hands!

Our Sponsors and Friends

Sans Souci is so grateful and proud to share that we have been the recipient of several grants in recent years, most notably from Boulder Arts Commission, Boulder County Arts Alliance, and the Lafayette Cultural Arts Commission. Like all arts organizations, we work hard to make the ends meet when putting on our events, and it feels great to be recognized and supported in our mission of bringing dance cinema to Boulder and beyond. We're sending a deep, heartfelt thank-you to these grantors, sponsors, and friends.
