Use a #+CATEGORY: property on top of each file, then use < in the
agenda to filter by the category the cursor is on.

No, but you can have a category per file and filter per category,
which does the same.  Always, you can narrow down the scope of the
agenda *before* creating the agenda, with C-c a < [yourkey] -- the
< means to narrow down to the current buffer.

Hope this helps,
