"Absolutely. Center City is known for its love of the arts. I have faith that both festivals will be supported. The more art, the better. Have it be accessible to as many people as possible."

"No. The city can barely support one Mummers Parade. A second film festival might dilute the effort to the point of extinction. Keep it to one."

"Yes, I think you'll have people attending both festivals. Just make sure it's well-advertised and you get the word out. The competition might increase the quality of the offerings."

"No. All effort directed into one event probably would be more productive. Do one big event well and it will be successful. You'll have a better turnout, rather than splitting into two [festivals]."
