Frozen River Film Festival will attract more Minnesota film submissions as well as musicians and visual artists. Analysis of our final program will demonstrate the increase of Minnesota speakers, musicians, filmmakers, visual artists and performance artists. 2: Frozen River Film Festival will increase the number of attendees, adults as well as students, to the film festival. We have different ticket styles for adults, college students and K-12 students and so are able to have an accurate count of the number of attendees in each category. We also have a system for determining where attendees live.
From Minnesota we had films from six filmmakers, ten musicians, six puppet show performers and sixteen visual artists, representing an increase of 20%. 2: Our outcome for the year increased while the festival week decreased mainly due to weather. The main events on festival weekend were well attended.
