Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Bring seven award-winning feature and/or documentary films in current theatrical release to Wadena's Cozy Theatre from September 12-18, 2014 and 6-8 short films. Raise the awareness of 900 adult moviegoers in rural Minnesota about the diversity and quality of contemporary film art and 150 youth. Provide a high quality venue to show high artistic value films to a rural audience of 900 adult persons and 150 youth.Audiences will be asked to complete a survey indicating their evaluation of the films at the 2014 festival. Results will be tabulated for a minimum of 200 movie audience members. Focus/discussion groups will meet during the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the Festival to share their reactions/evaluations of the films. Focus groups will convene at three locations: Uptown Cafe, Harvest Thyme Bistro, and Wadena Depot. A written record of the discussion groups' deliberations will be made.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successful film festival which maintained similar audience participation from previous years with vast majority of participants indicated a very positive experience.
