Sans Souci's 18th Call for Entries

Open Call: Dance Film Submissions

Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema proudly invites submissions of film and video works that integrate dance and cinematography for our 17th annual festival season. We encourage submissions from all artists regardless of credentials and affiliations.

Early Bird Deadline: Feb 28, 2021
Final Deadline: Apr 4, 2021

Submission fees vary by category.

Please see our website or our FilmFreeway page to read the complete rules and regulations before submitting. Keep an eye on and our Facebook page to stay up to date on news and deadlines!

Sans Souci Festival of Dance Cinema is a niche film festival based in Boulder, Colorado (USA), screening works in our hometown, across the USA, and around the world. 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.

 

Curatorial Criteria:
The integration of dance and cinematography is the heart of our work. When choosing works for exhibition and installation, we consider thoughtful forms and themes, investigative / innovative / experimental approaches, production values, audience appeal, choreographic creativity, virtuosic performance, and program fit. None of these criteria is a must; none is more important than the others; excellence in any one or two areas may be sufficient for acceptance. Cinematic elements must be an integral part of every entry. We encourage submissions from all artists regardless of credentials and affiliations.

Head to our website *sanssoucifestival.org* for more info.

Other News This Year
If the submission fee creates a financial barrier to your entry, Sans Souci may be able to help. For the first time ever, we’re offering a limited number of submission fee waivers and fee assistance to those with financial hardship. If you’d like to apply for this program, please submit an application form (available on the Submit page on our website) by the Early Bird Deadline of February 28. You’ll be notified shortly after the Early Bird Deadline whether or not you’ve been selected for a waiver. If not, you’ll still receive the Early Bird Deadline price for submission.
As stated in our mission and values, increasing equitable access to dance cinema festivals is a high priority for us. If you have questions about this, please feel free to reach out. Submitting the form does not guarantee receiving a waiver. Receiving fee assistance does not grant acceptance to the festival. All films submitted must go through curation, and may or may not be accepted for screening.
