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.

Winners of our 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.

Every two months we give filmmakers the opportunity to submit their latest work and compete with others.

Each bi-monthly 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.

Our annual Festival will screen selected winning movies of our monthly competition.

All the movies screened will compete with each other, the winners will be announced at the awards ceremony.

    Mindfield Film Festival of Los Angels has been wonderful. Communication is great they were quick to respond and kept us up to date along the way. Our team has had a great experience working with them. They are very supportive of small independent films, WebSeries in our case and that means so much to those of us who are trying to create and get our work noticed. We are truly grateful. Thank You! Mindfield LA ! ! !
