TCFF will increase the number of films presented by Minnesota filmmakers. Analysis of our final program will show an increase in the number of filmmakers, speakers, and musicians from Minnesota. 2: TCFF will increase the number of attendees and expand the reach of our audiences into Greater Minnesota and facilitate attendance of underserved youth. We have accurate methods to track tickets sold, the number of attendees at each event and where attendees live. We are partnering on a `free day` with organizations representing underserved youth.
An increased number of Minnesota artists were featured in TCFF 2016 Ticket sales and number of Minnesota films programmed are easily determined metrics to measure progress. A total of 35% of all TCFF films were Minnesota connected. This was up from 28% the previous year. TCFF also provides ballots in all films for the audiences to vote on the overall film quality. A Minnesota film won the audience choice award, and Minnesota connected films comprised seven of the top ten films of TCFF 2016. This project goal was extremely successful. 2: The number of attendees at TCFF increased by 60% in 2016. TCFF drew wider audiences from greater Minnesota and hosted more youth attendees than ever. Definable metrics include overall ticket sales and audience surveys. Surveys allow evaluation of who attended TCFF. Because TCFF focused much media attention in and programmed films by artists from greater Minnesota, there was increase in attendance from these regions. Overall ticket sales increased 65%. The TCFF Free Day was attended by nearly 100 youth ages 8-18. Additional youth attended two additional family friendly blocks for total attendance of 300 kids, up from a few dozen in 2015.
