Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Attending the Red Bridge Film Festival will result in greater awareness of current film art, seeing specific productions that may be the subject of national reviews or discussion, and having a positive experience overall.We will measure our success through attendance, both overall and for individual films and presentations, as well as comparing our festivalÆs attendance with attendance in prior years and attendance at similar festivals in other cities. Survey cards will be distributed at screenings with 50% or more of those completing the survey agreeing that they had a positive experience and expressing positive attitudes about the film selection for the festival. The survey will also ask the respondentÆs age. Festival committee members will solicit comments and suggestions from friends and other attendees.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Audience surveys were tallied and 10 of 17 responses (59%) gave a “favorable” rating.
