Please pass this newsletter on to friends

The first month of the new decade is almost over and already our film events calendar is filling up! We love the feeling we get when we hear from the community and our local partners -- we get our best ideas from all of YOU, so keep them coming! After a month-long hiatus in December, we've come back to new event partnerships, grown our Twitter list to almost 200, and continue to spread the good word about the importance of independent film in the Mill City -- WOW!

We couldn't do any of this without you, so as always, thank you for supporting our film mission in Lowell! Happy 2010 to everyone, and thank you so much for your past support in 2009!
