ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
The Lookout Wild Film Festival is a brand new niche festival in Chattanooga, Tenn. that aims to celebrate what we call "wild" films. We are looking for projects that celebrate the wild places around the Southeast, North America and the world.

Topics of such films may include — but are not limited to — exploration, conservation, nature, wildlife, survival and outdoor activities such as adventure sports. Some sports/activities we hope to encompass are: rock climbing, cycling, paddling, hiking, hang gliding, skiing, running, mountain biking, fishing, birding, snowshoeing, caving, boarding (snow, wake, skate and others), horseback riding, surfing, multisport, slack lining, base jumping and whatever else people are doing outside.

We are looking for narrative and documentary films, feature-length, shorts and everything in between.

But beyond any specific activity or theme, the LWFF board is looking for films that share our love and reverence to the outdoors. We want films that take us places we can't go — or haven't gone yet. We want films that help us see things with a new perspective.

Films will be shown over three days with an outdoor screening and block party on Chattanooga's riverfront and an awards ceremony and winner's block on Sunday.

Chattanooga is a youthful, growing outdoor mecca drawing in top experts and athletes from around the United States. We are also garnering attention from media outlets and tourism groups, headlined by Outside Magazine calling the Scenic City its "Best City Ever" in 2011 and the New York Times declaring that Chattanooga has the fastest Internet speeds in the country in 2010.

We believe that the Lookout Wild Film Festival will be key part of Chattanooga's continued growth as a destination for both outdoor enthusiasts and young, techie creatives. We hope to see you here!
