Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our prices are significantly lower than similar festivals (in quality and quantity of films, speakers and musicians). We strive to include different subcultures present in the community, such as our 2012 invitation to the deaf community to attend a film made by deaf people for both the hearing and the deaf which showed the hearing community the struggles of the deaf community and brought both together in a powerful Q and A.We track ticket sales, how many students from each school attend the festival, and use a tool that Winona State University sociology students developed to determine where attendees come from and their critique of the festival. The Winona State University arts administration department has also developed a tool for detailed evaluation of the economic impact in Winona.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our measurable goals were to increase attendance from region and from student population. We had a reasonable increase in attendance from all sectors.
