A Cinematic Celebration of The Best Outdoor Adventure and Conservation Films From Around The World at “The Jewel of the South”

The Lookout Wild Film Festival (LWFF), presented by Spectruss, is excited to host its 7th annual four-day film festival from January 24-27th at the Tivoli Theatre, “The Jewel of the South”, to celebrate “wild” places and the people they inspire alongside hundreds of other adventure enthusiasts from around the world.

This one big movie marathon is a celebration of “wild” places throughout the world, of outdoor sports and the extremes that people will go to in order to experience Earth’s rugged, natural beauty, and the conservation efforts of our most precious resources. The judges received a record-breaking number of 138 hours of film submissions from 36 countries for this year’s event. After reviewing, the judges finally narrowed it down to 17 hours of film selections, each chronicling another filmmaker’s unique experience.

In addition to the films, this year’s festival will feature virtual reality caving, live music, backstage yoga, a dinner with a lecture on wildness, a silent auction and an advocacy expo of area non-profit groups.

“Our goal has always been to show films about wild places and the people they inspire. We had no idea that along the way we would inspire so many audience members to go explore and protect the wild places around us,” said Andy Johns, founder of the Lookout Wild Film Festival.

This year, LWFF returns to Chattanooga for its 7th year with a new identity and theme from their lead sponsor, Spectruss, dedicated to going back to the roots of what the festival is all about, battling the elements, conquering fears and celebrating triumphs. Below are a few marketing materials the agency designed:

Due to the outstanding growth of the festival, this will be LWFF’s first year at the Tivoli Theatre, featuring a new movie screen that is that largest of its kind in North America. “At the heart of the festival, we’re just gathered together and telling stories. Because of partners like Spectruss, we’re able to share those stores to an even bigger audience in a fantastic venue,” said Johns.
