Local Hero Project, a mini-mini film festival held in conjunction with the Lookout Wild Film Festival, plans to run for the second year in a row.
The Local Hero Project film festival will be held March 20, at Mellow Mushroom in Downtown Chattanooga. The viewing party begins at 5:30 p.m. and is free to attend.
If you would like to be entered to win the big ticket prizes including: a family rafting trip, hang gliding lessons, a variety of outdoor equipment, plus many others, just click the “Yes, I am competing for prizes” option on the submission form. You are not obligated to compete. All entries will be taken into consideration for the viewing party and peoples choice vote. There will be a panel of professionals judging the competition videos.
Videos entered in the festival will be shown on Comcast's "Get Local" channel where they will run through the end of Riverfront Nights in September.
The deadline for entry is March 13. The rules for entry are simple: the video must be a high-definition film of an outside activity running three minutes or under. Officials said, "You may use any type of high-definition camera; even your cell phone takes high-definition video. We just ask you shoot horizontal if you are to use your cell phone."
All types of video submissions are encouraged, from the serene to the extreme.
