Glimmerglass Film Days

The 7th Annual Glimmerglass Film Days will take place in Cooperstown, November 7-11.  Through a curated slate of independent films, compelling speakers, and lively discussion, we will explore the 2019 theme “Adaptations”.

How do we respond in the face of unavoidable change? Even as society reacts to technological progress, climate change, and fractious politics, we as individuals must adapt to changes in our everyday lives.

Heraclitus uttered “the only constant in life is change” some 2500 years ago. The swift pace of change in today’s world demands tenacity, creativity and connection. This year’s films will explore how nature, society, and individuals persevere, persist, and plow ahead.

Films will be announced in early fall.

Rob Katz’s photo, “Zion Stairs” has been chosen as the winner for the Poster Image Contest. His photo best conveys the 2019 theme “Adaptations”. Rob says his photo shows “how nature finds its own solution to the obstacles that it faces.”

Entries were submitted from around the world, and we are grateful to all who entered.
