Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is one of Boulder’s longstanding favorite arts organizations, and we’re so happy to return to one of our most beloved venues, the Boedecker Cinema at Dairy Arts Center for two separate programs during late summer and early fall — Dancing on the Planet and Dancing as Ourselves.
October 22 @ 4PM & October 25 @ 7pm – Dancing as Ourselves features films from the U.K., the U.S., and Ukraine that will remind you how similar we all are as humans across the globe, yet how different we can be. This collection explores the various aspects of humankind as reflected by the body and movement. Through a multitude of contemporary dance forms, this screening illustrates that the range of humanity’s expression is as vast as the range of bodies we inhabit.

Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is a niche film festival where choreography meets cinematography. Based in Boulder, we’ve been collecting an archive for the last 20 years from artists around the world, and screening dance films, documentaries, music videos, and more. With an expansive definition of dance and an appreciation for highly experimental and interdisciplinary forms, this unique festival exposes diverse audiences to a variety of film, video, and performance possibilities. We open an annual call for entries, distributed around the world, with submissions curated by a panel of active dance filmmakers. We facilitate gatherings from educational workshops to public screenings to professional development for artists. While our roots remain proudly in Boulder County (Colorado, USA), our branches reach many locales nationally and internationally, and continue to grow.
