Cooperstown film fest set for trial run


Scheduled to be screened at 6 p.m. on Nov. 9 at the new Cooperstown Distillery on Railroad Avenue are a selection of short films about the natural world from the Black Maria Film Festival.

Most of the screenings will be at the Fenimore Art Museum, although other venues will include the National Baseball Hall of Fame and the chapel at Cooperstown Presbyterian Church.

One film that could be the most likely to ignite debate — if both sides of the gas drilling controversy show up — is "Drill Baby Drill," a documentary dealing with residents of a a rural community in Poland who resist plans by Chevron to drill a shale gas well. That 84-minute film will be screened at 4 p.m. on Nov. 9 at the Fenimore.

Other films that will be screened include: "Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World," "Microcosmos," "Field of Enchantment," "Rivers and Tides," "Chasing Ice," and "More Than Honey."

The complete schedule for the festival can be found at the web site
