If you can tell a good story, we want it as part of our event. At Crossings International Film Festival we hope to provide online screenings and a live festival. Both of which will depend on the quality of films we receive.

This festival will be hosted in Milwaukee Wisconsin in August 2024 which will be a hotspot in the country that year. Part of Crossings poetry, peace, and passion event, a charity fundraising, poetry slam with music, film and food trucks!

We are in search of those unique inspirational, thought provoking, well acted and directed films to make this an outstanding festival for all participants and our audiences.

@Crossings is about peace, and inspirational thought as presented in story.
