Glimmerglass Film Days presents documentaries, feature films, and shorts, curated by Peggy Parsons, director and founder of the film program at the National Gallery of Art. The fifth annual Film Days will be held in mid-November 2017, with additional events scheduled earlier in the Fall. Film Days offers question and answer sessions with filmmakers, receptions featuring local food and drink, a companion art exhibit, as well as guided walks, hikes and bike rides,
Glimmerglass Film Days was launched in the same spirit that the launched the Cooperstown Farmers’ Market—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, a program of Otesego 2000, 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 spirits.
Film Days screenings and events are held at landmark Cooperstown attractions, including the Fenimore Art Museum, The Farmers’ Museum, the Smithy Gallery, the Glimmerglass Festival, and the Otesaga Hotel.
