The festival started as an idea between Sofia Jonsson and Marco Armiero, soon Miyase Christensen and Jacob von Heland join the team. Thanks to the support and help from Roberta Biasillo and Camilla Winqvist the festival was made reality.

In late 2018 Crosscut broke grounds for the first time in history. During three days at Bio Rio in Stockholm, hundereds of visitors enjoyed a varied programme of documentary films and discussions on themes such as media activism, postcoloniality, resource extraction, indigenous politics, plastic, relational filmmaking and much more. The overall theme was intended to put an emphasis on bridges and crossings amongst individuals, publics, communities and institutions; and, research and film projects from a range of geographies, backgrounds, genres and disciplinary, professional, political, racial and gender orientations.
