Across the Globe Film Festival 🎥 is an international independent film festival, located in Stockholm, Sweden🦞, and New York City 🗽. 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 🍿.

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 some of 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 have a chance to 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! 🎂
