Across the Globe Film Festival šŸŽ„ is an international independent film festival, located in Stockholm, SwedenšŸ¦ž, and New York City šŸ—½. The mission of AGFF is to showcase the filmmakers of tomorrow, and to celebrate creativity, diversity, and independence in the art of cinema. AGFF is therefore a monthly film festival with annual screenings of the winners throughout the year šŸæ.

The event will take place live once a year with screenings of the monthly winners. Before, the screenings there will be a meet & greet/sign in for everyone who is attending with food and refreshments. After we will hold the screening for all the films and we will announce the winner once all the films are watched followed by a Q & A. Lastly, the event will end with a networking event.

Different from most film festivals, all winners at the Across the Globe Film Festival will receive a distribution deal with Side Street Studios. For more information check out our partner's website at

This is Across the Globe's first year in action and we can't wait to see your submission! šŸŽ‚
