For over ten years the Lookout Wild Film Festival has brought the best outdoor adventure and conservation films from around the world to Chattanooga for one awesome weekend.

Enjoy compelling on-screen stories that celebrate wild places and the people they inspire alongside hundreds of other adventure enthusiasts from around the Southeast.

We are also committed to being responsible stewards by using recyclable and compostable materials and avoiding unnecessary resource usage.


A two-time winner of Outdoor Magazine’s “Best Town Ever,” Chattanooga, Tennessee serves as an ideal host for a film festival dedicated to outdoor adventure and recreation. Chattanooga’s geography and natural formations are home to numerous outdoor sporting activities for its residents and visitors who live very active lifestyles.

Having Chattanooga as a backdrop to the wonderful films being shown at the festival continues to help the city serve as inspirational ground for discovering the wild outdoors!
