A few months ago, we merrily announced the first film of our series of documentaries & feature films presented en masse as our Film and the Arts Series. We kicked off this group of films with a screening of the beautifully haunting animated film The Secret of Kells, followed by the inspirational documentary Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision. These two films were a great way to introduce the rest of the series which is continuing this March. On a VERY exciting note, we are thrilled to announce that in partnership with the Arts League of Lowell, the LFC received a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council which will greatly help us subsidize the cost of the series. We are incredibly grateful to the MCC for recognizing the passion we have for bringing films to Lowell, whether they be under-the-radar indie films or more recognizable productions.
We hope you will mark your calendars for these upcoming events and help us spread the word! Hopefully there is at least one film in the series that will pique your interest, though in our opinion, each one of them has astounding allure. Please visit our 2011 Film & the Arts Series page on this site for program updates. As you will see, we are still in the process of nailing down some venues and showtimes, but we’ll update that page as plans progress. If you aren’t on our mailing list, please sign up to receive our periodic e-news — this is the best way to keep posted on program details.
We’re kicking off the series with a fantastic Boston-area produced documentary titled Who Does She Think She Is, which is also being shown in commemoration of Lowell Women’s Week in partnership with both the Arts League of Lowell and Lowell National Historical Park. This amazing documentary is intended to honor and applaud all the strong, loving female artists out there and the people that support them. We are thankful to have these great ladies in abundance in Lowell; because of that fact, this film is TRULY a must-see!
We hope you will save the date for Who Does She Think She Is
on Tuesday, March 8!
