The LFC is Going GREEN!
(And we don’t mean for St. Paddy’s!)
The Lowell Film Collaborative’s partnership with the Lowell Green Building Commission (GBC) has yielded a fabulous series of film events running every third Thursday of the month from March – June 2009.
Today, “green thinking” is a hotter than hot topic: Energy conservation, fuel prices, investing in and harnessing solar & wind power — all of these news flashes draw our attention to the inevitable — we can no longer stand idle and watch our natural resources dissipate or be frittered away.
The LFC is proud to be bringing this first educational film series to the City of Lowell in collaboration with the Green Building Commission. We hope these informative films stir up discussion and yield local initiatives within all our communities!
Please join us THIS MONTH for the FIRST OF FOUR films focusing on “Green Building” initiatives:
All films are FREE and open to the public!

Breakthroughs in new materials and ingenious designs for solar collectors are transforming the technology into a vastly cheaper, more efficient alternative. NOVA presents the latest thinking from solar enthusiasts and skeptics as it investigates cutting-edge research developments. This informative documentary introduces us to the scientists and businesspeople who are racing to make solar power practical for lighting, heating, and running power plants.
