For the 2015 festival, which will be held in March at the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo, the board and screening team are looking for films that tell stories about wild places and the people they inspire.
Filmmakers can submit their projects through the “Submit” link at lookoutfilmfestival.org or through a variety of online platforms, including FilmFreeway.com and festhome.com.
Selected films will screen at the 2015 LWFF and/or Outdoor Chattanooga’s monthly winter film series “Camp Chair Cinema.”
Already, the board has identified about 40 films worthy of consideration including topics such as free diving, ice climbing, antique bicycles, dam removal and nude snow skiing.
“It’s always exciting for the board and the screening team to get our first look at the films,” says festival director Andy Johns.
“Each time you push play, you never know where the filmmakers are going to take you. We’re thrilled to bring the best outdoor adventure and conservation films in the world to Chattanooga.”
Submission fees increase after the early bird deadline on Aug. 1, and the final deadline will be Jan. 5, 2015.
