Glimmerglass Film Days is about the stellar slate of independent films and engaging events, but it’s also about Cooperstown. Otsego 2000, the not-for-profit organization that founded Film Days, is dedicated to protecting and celebrating the historic, environmental, cultural, agricultural, rural and scenic resources of the Otsego Lake region. These resources enrich the lives of residents and visitors alike.
To offer some time to explore the outdoors, Film Days offers walks and hikes led by the Otsego County Conservation Association, the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society, and the Otsego Land Trust. More opportunities to connect with nature in Otsego County can be found on Otsego Outdoors.
Peter Rutkoff, who leads the discussion during the popular Film Days Sunday Brunch and Film Discussion, seeks out the hidden gems of Cooperstown that first-time or even repeat visitors may miss. Visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the Fenimore Art Museum, the Glimmerglass Festival, and The Farmers’ Museum, but also take the time to experience the shops, restaurants, galleries, and businesses that also call Cooperstown home. Peter’s essay “Hidden Cooperstown” will introduce you to some great folks and offer insider tips for your visit to Cooperstown, which we hope will make it feel a bit like “home” to you.
