Hi @Anonymous, 

Unfortunately with out-of-the-box portals you cannot render lookups field/column type into a multiselect. You can render lookups as dropdown or use the standard behavior with the model window to pick an item. If you really need multiselect then it's more advance where you'll need to use Liquid and JavaScript. Or change the lookup type to option set...

Suggest to submit that idea though at:
