Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema,

Sans Souci, based in Boulder, Colorado, U.S.A., is a niche film festival specializing in dance cinema and incorporating live performance.

Looking to 2020

Looking into the new year, we see great things for SSF! We've been invited back to do another Brazilian Edition of the festival in Campinas, SP, Brazil, and we can't wait to hop on the plane! This year we'll create a new way of enjoying the SSF Archive: a 'take-a-break' room at the CoDEO Annual Conference, where attendees can spend a few minutes or more stepping away from the main conference activities and drifting into the world of dance cinema. We'll also return to screening partners Texas State University, and Lafayette Public Library for the annual kids' screening. Thanks to support from the Boulder Arts Commission, we'll introduce two new themed screenings celebrating Black History Month and Women's History Month.

Of course, our annual Call for Entries will be out in early spring, so check back for announcements about submissions in February!

Our Sponsors and Friends

Sans Souci is so grateful and proud to share that we have been the recipient of two grants this year: one from Boulder Arts Commission and the other from Boulder County Arts Alliance. 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 this season's grantors, sponsors, and friends.
