Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The variety and number of Minnesota artists that are presented through festivals increases. 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.

Measurable Outcome(s)

From Minnesota the FRFF had films from six filmmakers, ten musicians, three puppet show performers and seventeen visual artists, representing an increase of 20%. Analysis of our final program, insert and Fringe Friday demonstrates the increase of Minnesota speakers, musicians, filmmakers, visual artists and performance artists.
