Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is a niche film festival where choreography meets cinematography.

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 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.

Sans Souci is one of the longest running Dance Cinema festivals.
