    My film script SHEPHERDING CASSIE was Selected to be part of the festival. Am knockout proud. Over joyed I entered Mindfield FF. They are on my list for future scripts, because I feel like someone took the time to actually read every word of my screenplay.

    Mindfield notified participants that the dates were changing for the FF deadline. They communicated well. Great to get a Silver Award for my Screenplay! I appreciate the opportunity to participate and be selected to be included in this FF.
