Through film & video screenings, discussions, film festivals & series events, the LFC strives to support local and regional cinema and motion picture artists while developing partnerships with local businesses and organizations.

We’ve made it to the final film of our 2020 Eco Film Series season! This month, we’re bringing it back home to the Merrimack Valley for a locally produced documentary showcasing the past, present, and future of our region’s most vital natural resource: the Merrimack River.

In 2016, American Rivers listed the Merrimack River as one of America’s ten most endangered riversThe Merrimack: River at Risk explores why it’s endangered as well as its human and natural history. The river flows through some of region’s biggest cities – Lowell, Lawrence, Manchester – but it’s watershed still contains some wild, intact open spaces. Join us as we view stunning footage from the Merrimack’s headwaters in the White Mountains to its mouth at the beaches in Newburyport and Salisbury, Massachusetts. We are so honored to be premiering this film at our Eco Film Series!
