Filmmakers and filmmakers wannabes: It’s not too late to submit to the 2014 Lookout Wild Film Festival. You’ve got until Dec. 20, so lights, camera, action!
The LWFF board of directors has announced that the 2014 Lookout Wild Film Festival will be March 21-23, 2014 in Chattanooga.
The inaugural festival last March featured two dozen short and feature-length films about adventure sports, conservation and exploration. Half of the films had some connection to Chattanooga or the Southeast. Guests were treated to a live bird demonstration from filmmaker John Stokes and his bald eagle Osceola, as well as a video chat Q&A with award-winning filmmakers Steve and Elizabeth Wampler.
In 2013, the LWFF panel screened 75 films from more than 15 countries in order to pick the selections for the audience. Already this season, festival organizers have received 20 submissions from Tennessee, Georgia, Minnesota, Washington, New York and California. Filmmakers from as far away as Egypt and Hungary have also inquired about submitting their films.
The festival’s mission is to showcase wild places and the people they inspire through film. To submit a film, filmmakers should visit www.lookoutfilmfestival.org and follow the 2014 submission link.
