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.

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 will compete with each other and the winners will be announced at the Live Festival.

Overall Rating
  • The correspondence with Mindfield Film Festival • Albuquerque team was great. The festival has not yet taken place, which I will not be attending. Hopefully next year I will be able to.

    I'm grateful for the official selection of GASP, the Best Short Diamond Award, and the wonderful feedback. Even though it was not selected to be screened during the upcoming 9/14/19 festival, the communication and value of the festival was worth it. Wishing the team a successful day on 9/14/19.

  • Well run festival and I would recommend it to anyone submitting their film to the festival circuit and trying to get their name out there. I will certainly be entering my next film to this festival. Considering the amount of films that are received by this festival, it was a great honor that my animated short film won the Diamond award for Best Animation Short.

    It was a pleasure to be a part of the Mindfield Film Festival! They communicated clearly and often, and were very responsive to questions. I was thrilled to have "If I Knew" be a part of such a wonderful event.
