Shining the spotlight on dance on film. 

Following a successful inaugural season in 2022 and the 2023 Open Call season, our short dance film series 8-COUNT returns to the festival for its third edition with a special one-night-only premiere screening on Sep 29 at our newest venue, Paradise Theatre! 

8-Count is FFDN’s short dance film series showcasing national and international dancemakers and filmmakers producing elevated short dance films. We are excited that this year we brought back 8-Count’s open call for short dance films and an honorarium of $700 for each selected film. This year's 8-COUNT feature short dance films are currently being selected and the official lineup will be publicly announced in August 2024. 

Enjoy the full cinema experience with FFDN; this year, your ticket to 8-Count includes free popcorn!
