Mindfield showcases features, shorts and music videos by filmmakers from around the world, celebrating and supporting independent, new and alternative filmmakers not just during our annual Film Festival but throughout the year with our monthly competitions.

A number of selected award 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.

BI-MONTHLY COMPETITIONS:
Every two months we give filmmakers the opportunity to submit their latest work and compete with others.

Each bi-monthly award winner will automatically be considered to be screened at our annual Film Festival. Every winner will get a digital laurel and has the option to purchase a trophy.
