    Mindfield is great. My screenplay, The Shakespeare Plays, won the Diamond Award for the Best Feature Script, which is a wonderful thing to be able to add to my CV/resume. Many thanks to Mindfield! Martin Keady (@mrtnkeady)

    Thanks Mindfield Film Festival for supporting The Astronot this year. We noticed the re-tweets and the mentions. There are a lot of good festivals out there but Mindfield were especially active on the socials and we noticed! On behalf of The Astronot's producer, director and writer, THANK YOU!!!

    Excellent and friendly communication from this festival, which selected my film American Barbarian. If we are fortunate enough to have the film screen, I hope I'm able to attend and meet the hosts, as is our lead actress who is a New Mexico native. All in all a very positive experience!
