It is the goal of The Duluth Superior Film Festival is to create new opportunities for audience access to filmmakers, artists and art in a previously underserved cultural canon. Duluth Superior Film Festival looks to present films produced from the Arrowhead region and from around the world, engage with cultures unlike our own and to revisit cultures from which audiences have been previously disconnected. Duluth Superior Film Festival's measurable outcomes are to increase attendance at all events, provide greater access to larger audience, gain higher profile press coverage, help encourage/increase local film productions and create year-round financial stability.The Duluth Superior Film Festival will measure outcomes through the use of audience surveys, track attendance at Explorers Club screenings, log press and promotional coverage, cultivate new audience through cross collaborations with other arts organizations, and increase fundraising through grant and sponsorship opportunities. Evaluation will also occur with the number of film productions that come to the Arrowhead Region. Duluth Superior Film Festival will continue to work closely with partner organizations such as Independent Filmmaker Project-Minnesota, The Minnesota Film and Television Board and the Upper Minnesota film Office to monitor this activity and to channel these productions to exhibition at the Duluth Superior Film Festival and Zinema venues.
The short range outcome of The Explorers Club was to increase attendance at Explorers Club, raise awareness of these types of cinema events through press and promotion, remain financially sound, and energize arts in the region by presenting unique cinema experiences. In this capacity, the series is successful as the act of presenting this type of artistic cinema is an important part of Duluth Superior Film Festival's and Zinema's mission. The long range outcome is to expand the regional artistic community by producing a quality, entertaining, and thought provoking cinema exhibition. Raising the profile of films produced regionally remains a constant portion of Duluth Superior Film Festival's goals. Providing quality, year round cinema to an appreciative Arrowhead Region nurtures an environment conducive to future quality productions in the region.
