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 will automatically be considered to be in the official selection of 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.

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 will compete with each other and the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony.

  • This is one of the festivals we have submitted our maiden short film "FALL". The communication has been top notch and we won in multiple categories. The feedback was awesome. I highly recommend this festival to any Indie filmmaker.

    Amazing and beyond.
    Not just selected were we, but welcomed with the same mark of excitement that we felt upon getting the good news of selection.
    Yes, great new friends that we look forward to seeing again as we consider our next production for Mindfield in The Land of Enchantment.
    Thank you, all,

  • What an organized festival thus far. Even though I only dealt with this festival online thus far I am very impressed on how well it is put together. Looking forward to building a long last relationship with this team.
