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.

Sans Souci Celebrates 16th Season

This fall we welcome more screenings than ever before! We began with our 16th annual premiere event at the Charlotte York Irey Theatre, including live performance and installation exhibits. We're happy to be returning to some beloved partner venues: the Collective Community Arts Center for one screening in Lafayette, and the Boedecker Cinema, bringing you five screenings including a night featuring local artists' films. In a new partnership with the Flatirons Food Film Festival, we'll screen an archive favorite to help introduce a whole new audience to the delicious world of dance cinema. We'll end the season with a screening dedicated to dancers across the age spectrum, thanks to a new partnership with VIVA Theater.

Premiere Event Trailer

We've got a brand new trailer out, featuring a sneak peek at films that we'll feature at the Premiere Event. To see trailers from past shows, check out our Vimeo page.

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 Comission 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.
