Has the implementation of the policy/measure been evaluated?: 
YES
If yes, what are the main conclusions/recommendations?: 

- We consider it is necessary to broaden the call, involving other regions of the country; to do so, the festival's communication plan should be strengthened.
- A program to train audiences should be developed with the community, prior to the festival, not only with the aim to fill the rooms but also to train citizens to participate in culture.
- The offer of training activities on audiovisual issues should be enhanced, as it is the case of "Creative Freedom", and the scope should be expanded to other spaces of vulnerable population, such as homes for abandoned children, abused women, teenage mothers, etc.
- It is essential to create a network of festivals that allows us to strengthen our skills to organize festivals for the cultural and arts industries.
