Minnesota Festival Support
ACHF Cultural Heritage
Frozen River Film Festival will increase the number of Minnesota artists presented at the festivals. 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.
By offering the sole documentary-only film festival in Minnesota, FRFF features filmmakers who otherwise would not have an audience in this state. For artist evaluation, FRFF looks at both what happens during the festival and after. Since FRFF has a mission to educate and activate, post-festival activities are important. Artist evaluation comes in email responses. Artists express a desire to return. Artists spread the word about FRFF, and in return, FRFF receives more direct film submissions from artists. Each member of the board evaluates two programs with an in-depth analysis of how the program fit the festival's mission and goals. 2: FRFF audience reached 3,300 with 210 artists participating, with 70% of those from Minnesota. FRFF participates in evaluation and assessment. It counts and surveys audiences, and it tracks ticket sales and type, and zip codes of purchasers. It helps FRFF to evaluate popular ticket types and demographics. All board members are required to attend % evaluate two festival events. All film submissions are chosen by committee, all film screenings are juried for awards. With increasing attendance, partnership support, and increasing direct film submissions, FRFF is achieving a high level of Minnesota exposure to the arts.
