Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We leverage the energy of the Minnesota music scene to expose Minnesota film to new audiences. Our mission is to increase exposure for Minnesota film. We measure and evaluate our success by surveying attendees about whether they ever typically attend film events.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We promoted Minnesota film to new audiences and fostered collaboration between musicians and filmmakers. We used our online ticketing process (optional questionnaire) and our online film festival submission platforms (mandatory questions) to gather most of this data.
