Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We expect to have 400 films submitted involving as 1000-1200 artists combined. Most will be adults but one of our goals is educating minors in video production. We will have at least 5 films from minors and also aide in the creation of 5 local films that will be shown at the festival. We will have 8 shows with an average attendance of 125 people for a total of 1000 patrons. We use submission forms for the films that are shown at the festival. It tells us how many adults, minors, men and women worked on each project and how involved they were. With most projects using anywhere from 15-25 (or more) people we will be able to show art that a lot of people worked on and are proud of. In order to account for the patrons we will sell tickets. This will allow us to track how many people have attended each showing.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We received 462 submissions (from 45 countries) which involved the work of 1300 artists. We got 17 films from minors and helped in the production of 6 local films. We had 13 shows with a per show average of about 55 (717 total).
