The fourth annual Glimmerglass Film Days will be held November 10-14 in multiple landmark Cooperstown locations, including the Fenimore Art Museum, the Otesaga Resort Hotel, the Smithy Gallery, and The Farmers’ Museum. The curated slate of 16 films, plus award-winning shorts, explore the theme “Against the Odds.” Film Days also features filmmakers and guest speakers, parties with local food and drinks, a companion art exhibit, guided hikes and walks, and great discussions. Glimmerglass Film Days, a project of Otsego 2000, encourages locals and visitors to enjoy Cooperstown’s museums and galleries, shops, restaurants, and natural beauty. The first-ever CoopEats, Cooperstown Restaurant Weekend is a great complement to the long weekend of films and events.
Glimmerglass Film Days was launched in the same spirit that the launched the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market 25 years ago—to build an event that contributes significantly to local cultural life and attracts both residents and tourists to experience Main Street and the natural, cultural and historic resources in the Otsego Lake region. The mission of Glimmerglass Film Days, curated by the National Gallery of Art’s Peggy Parsons, is to showcase exceptional independent films that explore humanity’s complex relationship with the natural world. Films and discussions explore both the natural and built environments, and include documentaries, classic features, short films and experimental films. In addition, the weekend puts an emphasis on exploring the Otsego region, with an emphasis on local foods and local brews and spirits.
