Founded in 2013 by Otsego 2000 and the National Gallery of Art’s film program director Peggy Parsons, Glimmerglass Film Days is Upstate New York’s preeminent environmental film festival. Held each November, this film festival brings together both locals and tourists for a weekend of thought provoking and unique independent films, from personal and powerful documentaries, award winning foreign features to educational and entertaining kids’ films. The films are screened throughout the Cooperstown area..
The festival encourages its audience to engage with their natural surroundings through film and hikes through the Otsego Lake region. Each year, Glimmerglass Film Days chooses a theme that brings attention to the area’s integral and delicate ecosystem, while also exposing its audience to new and unique pieces of cinema. In 2016, our selections will explore Resilience – how humans, cultures, traditions, species, and nature respond to adversity and change.
