WHY call it the HOLLYWEED FILM FESTIVAL ?

Did you know that in 2017, after marijuana was legalized in California, an artist/prankster climbed up to the sign, at night, in the rain and altered the world famous sign from Hollywood to Hollyweed, thus causing an international news story and creating a psychological disruption for the business as usual residents of Los Angeles. We aim to disrupt business as usual with the Hollyweed Film Festival. You know the drill, submit your film, pay the fee and never hear back from whatever festiva...

LOOKOUT WILD FILM FESTIVAL

The Lookout Wild Film Festival is an outdoor adventure and conservation festival in Chattanooga, Tenn., that aims to celebrate what we call "wild" films. We are looking for projects that celebrate the wild places around the Southeast, North America and the world.

Topics of such films may include — but are not limited to — exploration, conservation, nature, wildlife, survival and outdoor activities such as adventure sports. Some sports/activities we hope to encompass are: rock climbing, cycling, paddling, hiking, hang gliding, skiing, running, mountain biking, fishing, birding, snowshoeing, caving, boarding (snow, wake, skate and others), horseback riding, surfing, multisport, slack lining, base jumping and whatever else people are doing outside.

We are looking for narrative and documentary films, feature-length, shorts and everything in between.

But beyond any specific activity or theme, the LWFF board is looking for films that share our love of the outdoors and storytelling. We want films that take us places we can't go — or haven't gone yet. We want films that help us see things with a new perspective.

Films will be shown over three days at the historic Chattanooga Choo Choo.

Chattanooga is a youthful, growing outdoor mecca drawing in top experts and athletes from around the United States. The city are also garnering attention from media outlets and tourism groups, headlined by Outside Magazine calling the Scenic City its "Best City Ever" in 2011 and the New York Times declaring that Chattanooga has the fastest Internet speeds in the country in 2010.

We believe that the Lookout Wild Film Festival will be key part of Chattanooga's continued growth as a destination for both outdoor enthusiasts and young, techie creatives. We hope to see you here!

 

A Lifestory

Director: Nacho Rodríguez.

'A Lifestory' is an animation based upon 'The Hymn of the Pearl', a poem from the second century AD. We've remade it into a surreal journey starring a space cat. The original poem is considered epic or mystical, we were drawn to it by its archetypical side, by its universal elements which can be found in everyone's psychology: the depart from the family home on a mission to realize our own destiny in a strange land, falling into sleep, forgetting the origin, then being rescued by our most intimate memory, to finally go back home.

Urban Action Showcase

 

 

 

 

The Urban Action Showcase is a 3 day Independent Action Showcase and Film Festival premiering minority filmmakers specifically in the Action Film Genre. Action is the genre of choice of fans and Studios alike when it comes to Summer Blockbusters not to mention 9 out of the top 10 highest grossing films to date all have Action at its core! The Danger, Thrill, and Excitement of the Action genre keeps us all at the edge of our seats from the small screen to the big screen and it would seem that the Action genre has it all accept for one very important factor, Diversity. Without equal opportunity and diversity any positive message can be misconstrued. By focusing on the thrill and excitement of the Action genre and recognizing the need for integration the Urban Action Showcase sets itself apart from other film festivals as the only one of its kind!

With the initiative of social responsibility and ethnic diversity, the Urban Action Showcase advocates minority actors, filmmakers, producers, and industry professionals of the Action film genre through workshops, panel discussion, screenings and events. Through strong networks and sponsorship support the Urban Action Showcase endeavors to encourage major studios to both include and pioneer more ethnically diverse casts and projects in the Action genre for example the Fast and Furious franchise. The Urban Action Showcase will continue to grow meeting and exceeding expectations with the help of our partnering sponsors and Indie Action fans across the nation. The Urban Action Showcase Indie Action Film Festival welcomes film and television Animation and Live Action Shorts and Feature narratives in all aspects of the Action genre.

The Urban Action Showcase is Executive Produced by Action Scene Combat Productions a full service production company pioneering ethnically diverse works in the Action film genre founded in 2000 by Demetrius Angelo the creator of the Urban Action Showcase.

Baron Muenchhausen tells the legendary adventure tales of the German "Baron of Lies". As the story unfolds he has seen better times and tells his high tales at a pub for money when a girl claims to be his daughter. To prove her wrong they make their way to St. Petersburg to see her mother and experience many unbelievable adventures on their journey.

Second chapter
The cannonball catapulted Munchhausen and Frieda up onto the moon; the Man in the Moon blesses mankind from up here with shooting stars and he gives the two heroes the rope with which they can get back down to earth – right into the middle of the deepest Russian winter. In the bitter cold, even the Russian post horns freeze. But Frieda does not seem to be in a hurry to return to her mother. In St Petersburg too, the girl does everything she can to stay longer with Munchhausen. In the Tsarina's palace, she finds a scheming  adversary in the shape of Catherine the Great. She wants to have Munchhausen all to herself and is madly jealous of the child which looks so like her Baron. When she discovers Frieda's secret, her life is no longer safe…

La Mer de la Tranquilité / The Sea of Tranquility

Today, more than three decades after the closing of the last mine, this same place is generally known as a grim town famous for its high unemployment rates. Still, to those who are willing to look beyond the statistics, this town reveals its beauty. In particular, this documentary shows a multicultural and convivial ...

Spaghetti for Two

Director: Matthias Rosenberger.
When losers win... Of the money-grubbing homeless, to wanton barmaids and armed grocery bandits... Or, how a seemingly ordinary day becomes a significant turning point for an unremarkable man, thanks to a minimal shift of fate.

THE RETURN OF DOMINIQUE DELADOOR

user
Director: ZACHOS SAMOLADAS.
Secret agent Dominick Deladoor wakes up after being in coma for 6 years. His memory progressively comes back and with that comes trouble. However in the world of secret services what appears is not always what it seems to be. Who is John Valos, and why is Valos so eager to kill Deladoor? And in the end what is the role of Dominick’s father?

Superzebraman

Director: HORACI GARCIA, ORIOL FAURA Y JAVIER URTASUN.
SUPERZEBRAMAN, a documentary about how to make the first Spanish Nigerian production of the history without having a clue. The scene: Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry that produces the largest number of films in the world, over the powerful Hollywood and Bollywood industries. A concept of the cinema in which the movies are rolled in two weeks and for less than 20.000 dollars, accessibly a priori and which Javier Urtasun believed attainable. The thing is that this special look to the seventh art definitively is a world full of possibilities, or at least this was what Javier Urtasun thought.

Born in agreement to the requirements of script of the Nigerian industry, SUPERZEBRAMAN (The movie) counts the history of a man who changes the color of his skin thanks to the power of the zebras. An ambiguous starting point that constitutes the first step of a way riddled with anecdotes gathered in this delirious documentary.

Probably after seeing the documentary we will understand why this first Spanish Nigerian film was never done before: it is necessary to have testicles. Great ode to life and to the dreams that it we should never stop fulfilling, in SUPERZEBRAMAN (The Documentary) you realize that though the producer is drunk and the director does not appear, the important thing is to know that the perimeter is defended by a good number of AK47.
