The Lowell Film Collaborative: Bringing The Magic of Film To The Mill City

Our passion is showing film — join us for our community screenings & events! 

Suzzanne & Brett Cromwell

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, 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. 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.

JOIN THE REGENERATION and experience a positive vision of what ‘could be,’ instead of the dystopian future we are so often presented!

The 2040 journey began with award-winning director Damon Gameau. Motivated by concerns about the planet his 4-year-old daughter would inherit, Damon embarked on a global journey to meet innovators and change-makers in the areas of economics, technology, civil society, agriculture, education, and sustainability. Drawing on their expertise, he sought to identify the best solutions, available to us now, that would help improve the health of our planet and the societies that operate within it. From marine permaculture to decentralized renewable energy projects, he discovered that people all over the world are taking matters into their own hands.

This journey is the central premise for 2040, a story of hope that looks at the very real possibility that humanity could reverse global warming and improve the lives of every living thing in the process. 


Here’s how you can attend all our events:

1. You must RSVP IN ADVANCE with Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust to receive the Zoom link
2. At 7pm on the night of the event, we’ll all start watching the film on Zoom in the comfort of our homes, so relax, grab some popcorn and a nice beverage! Before and after the film, we’ll share thoughts, comments, and enjoy group discussion.
