Yep – here it is again, that time of year to list all the things we’re thankful for, like friends and family and freedom, and other things that may or may not begin with the letter “f.” Here at the LFC, our favorite “f” thing to give thanks for is film. Because we love film. We love watching it, we love talking about it, and most of all, we love SHOWING it! This year has been so special for us. It was our first full year in operation, and we were able to screen some fantastic film for cinema buffs in and around the Mill City. The month of November was especially…er, special, as all four events we hosted were well-attended, well-discussed, and so incredibly momentous, each in their own way. So we want to thank all of you who’ve helped make our time and effort through this organization so exciting.
With all this success and things to give thanks for, we’ve decided to take the month of December off, to relish in our 2009 success, recoup from the stress of planning multiple events simultaneously, and to start planning for an even better 2010! We’ll keep posting film events and rants here on the blog, so don’t get discouraged – just because the LFC isn’t hosting an event in Lowell doesn’t mean there isn’t great film to be enjoyed! We are moving into the Oscar season, which is that wonderful time of year when 25 or 30 well-written, superbly-acted art films get released in the same month, which makes for one expensive and time-consuming holiday season.
We’re starting the holidays off right with a visit to the Burlington Cinema this morning to see Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Hope you all have a safe, fun, and film-tastic Thanksgiving holiday. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
