Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Duluth Superior Film Festival's short range outcomes are to raise awareness of these types of cinema events through press and promotion, remain financially sound, stabilize our organization's ability to continue to produce events, and to energize arts in the region by presenting unique cinema experiences. The long range outcome is to expand the regional artistic community by producing a quality, entertaining, and thought provoking film festival, provide organizational growth and raise the profile of films produced regionally. The Duluth Superior Film Festival will continue to use the measurement outcome tools of: audience surveys, attendance tracking at festival screenings, press and promotional coverage logging, new audience cultivation through cross collaborations with other arts organizations, profile raising of films produced regionally, fundraising increases through grant and sponsorship opportunities. Duluth Superior Film Festival culls incredibly valuable information from use of these tools. Surveys give us feedback regarding audience enjoyment levels which gives insight to whether we are attaining our goal of providing quality, entertaining and thought provoking cinema events.
