Mindfield Film Festival - Albuquerque, is part of the Mindfield Festival circuit.
Albuquerque (home of Breaking Bad) has a thriving film community that shines bright in the sunny Land of Enchantment.

Mindfield - Albuquerque showcases: Features, Shorts, and Music videos by filmmakers from around the world. We celebrate and support Independent, new, and Alternative filmmakers; not just during our annual Film Festival but throughout the year with our bi-monthly online competitions.

Winners of our bi-monthly online competition move up a tier and are then added to a pool which will later be considered to screen at our annual festival.

Mindfield aims to show the very best in new independent cinema and to give filmmakers a place to show their work to people who appreciate it.

Each bi-month we give filmmakers the opportunity to submit their latest work and compete with others. Any project submitted to Mindfield - Albuquerque will automatically be entered into the bi-monthly competition. Projects are not screened during the bi-monthly competition.

An Official Selection for the bi-monthly competition is not an Official Selection to the Annual Live Festival.

As stated above, each bi-monthly winner will be added to a pool (the next tier) to be considered for screening at our annual Film Festival. Every winner will get a digital laurel.

The annual live screening is a separate entity from the bi-monthly competition. A different panel will make their selection for the live screening from the winners pool of the bi-monthly competition.

All projects screened (and scripts selected for the live festival) will compete with each other and the winners will be announced at the Live Festival.
