Growth alone is not our goal; it is a product of a successful festival. The greater need is to maintain the community context.Track ticket sales to measure audience growth, track how many students from each school attend, and track growth in financial support.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The 5-day festival offered documentary films that engaged, educated and activated the community to become involved in the world.
