An evening of dance cinema installation, performance, and films screening on the museum rooftop.
“Join Sans Souci at The Museum of Boulder for a night to remember, celebrating the opening of our 18th season!
You’ll enter like a star through a VIP red carpet photo area…it is a film festival, after all! Grab a local brew or glass of wine (first beverage included in ticket!), and check out video installations for looping throughout the Museum before and after the screening and during intermission for an intimate experience with select films. Take a peek at the Museum’s five open exhibits on your way to pick up your pre-purchased snack pack on the rooftop patio.
Beginning with a live performance by Samba dancer Luciana Da Silva (Friday and Saturday only), we’ll embark on a screening of our new season’s top scoring films. As always, our selections are submitted from around the world and curated by a panel of professional dance filmmakers to bring you the most cutting edge work in the realm where dance and cinema collide. Audiences are encouraged to arrive early to engage with the installations; some installations will have headphones for a more up close and personal experience with the films. All these films are making their SSF debut, and tickets must be purchased in advance.”
Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is a niche film festival where choreography meets cinematography. We’ve been collecting an archive for the last 18 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 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.
“Audiences are encouraged to arrive early to engage with the installations; some installations will have head phones for a more up close and personal experience with the films.
This screening runs approximately 85 minutes plus one 15-minute intermission.
