Our passion is showing film — join us for our community screenings & events!
Founded by avid film buffs Suzzanne and Brett Cromwell, the Lowell Film Collaborative (LFC) is a grassroots initiative dedicated to enhancing the burgeoning artistic community of Lowell, Massachusetts, by celebrating the art of motion pictures. Through film & video screenings, discussions, and film festivals, the LFC works to support local and regional cinema and motion picture artists while developing partnerships with local businesses and organizations. In addition to Suzzanne and Brett, the LFC includes a community of supporters who are like-minded film enthusiasts that share their desire to see more independent film in Lowell, AND the Merrimack Valley.
The 5th Annual “Land, Air & Water” Eco Film Series
Co-presented with Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust
Tuesday, February 28 @ 6:30pm
Lowell National Historical Park Visitor Center
246 Market Street, Lowell
Set in the heart of British Columbia’s Central Purcell Mountains, the Jumbo Valley provides critical habitat for grizzly bears and other roaming wildlife, moving north and south along the mountains, and crossing the international border to feed the endangered grizzly population in the US Cabinet Mountains.
For nearly 25 years, the Jumbo Glacier Resort (JGR) has been proposed in the upper Jumbo Valley, a place already teeming with ski resorts operating under capacity right in the middle of the wilderness and critical wildlife habitat. Produced by Patagonia, Jumbo Wild follows the 25-year conflict between ski resort developers and the conservationists, skiers, and First Nation tribes who are all trying to “Keep Jumbo WILD”!
In addition to Jumbo Wild, we’ll showcase some of the winners of the Land Trust Alliance’s “Land is My…” video contest. These creative short films explore what land means to different people around the country!
