Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We seek to increase by 5% the cultural diversity of film/animation submissions to this film festival. We seek to increase by 5% the geographical diversity of Minnesota submissions to our festival by increasing outreach to rural areas of the state. We evaluate our proposed outcomes via bio information gathered from filmmakers/animators (and their production team) during the online film submission process. We evaluate the geographical diversity of submissions via zip code data during online submission and by collecting data about the production team associated with each film/animation project.
