Our Story

When Peggy Parsons shared her dream in 2012 of establishing a film festival in Cooperstown under the auspices of Otsego 2000, the decision was an easy one.  As a showcase for films exploring humanity’s complex relationship with the natural world, we anticipate that Glimmerglass Film Days will become a draw to the region through its inspiring films combined with local foods, walks, hikes and bike rides exploring the tranquility of an Otsego autumn.

One of the first uniquely American novelists, James Fenimore Cooper, pioneered a 200-year-old environmental ethic on the shores of Lake Otsego that inspires us to the present day.  Destined to become an annual showcase for powerful films reflecting our complex relationships with the natural world, Glimmerglass Film Days encourages environmental stewardship through encounters and lively collaboration with world-class artists, activists and scholars. Partnering with local organizations to bring cultural events–screenings, hikes, talks, bike rides, and exhibits–of world class quality  to our region.

Glimmerglass Film Days is due entirely to the hard work, creativity and unbridled enthusiasm of an extremely dedicated committee, our sponsors, and volunteers.

 

This project is made possible with public funds from the Chenango Arts Council’s Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the NYS Council on the Arts, with support from Governor Cuomo and the NYS Legislature.
