Festival grows, with more movies and a new location
Attendees at the 2015 Lookout Wild Film Festival will get to see nearly twice as many films compared to last year, ranging from dog sledding in Finland to sailing the Caribbean—and all on a bigger screen at a new venue.
Highlights from this year’s festival—set for Mar. 20-22 at the Robert Kirk Walker Community Theatre—will include two North Carolina paddlers exploring waterfalls in the Adirondacks, a look at how light pollution is harming Japan’s fireflies, a solo paddle down Alabama’s Cahaba River, caving in Borneo and even extreme hula hooping in the Tetons.
“The quality and variety of the outdoor films we’re able to incorporate into LWFF continues to amaze us, and some of these films will absolutely stun the audience,” says Andy Johns, festival director. “The stories in the films had us hooked, the people had us laughing and the places left us awestruck.”
Tickets, priced at $5 per block or $10 for the weekend pass, are on sale now through the Memorial Auditorium box office and chattanoogaonstage.com
