Crossing the Screen 2020 Awards


CROSSING THE SCREEN is an international film festival, meant to showcase innovative and independent forms of visual art from all over the world.

The inaugural edition was held at the Birley Centre in Eastbourne, East Sussex, in November 2016.
Its 2nd and 3rd editions took place in Eastbourne, in November, over 4 different venues, including the prestigious Towner Art Gallery.
