Entries Now Being Accepted for Sept. 20-21 Baseball Film Festival

(COOPERSTOWN, NY) – The history of the National Pastime is preserved forever in Cooperstown.

That history includes not only the real-life exploits of the heroes of the game, but also the stories of the heroes of celluloid.

The shared history of baseball and motion pictures is on display every day at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum through the Baseball At The Movies exhibit. And the newest films capturing the essence of the National Pastime are featured in the Museum’s annual Baseball Film Festival, which is now accepting entries for the 2019 event.

The 14th annual Baseball Film Festival will be held Sept. 20-21 in Cooperstown, and filmmakers can submit their work to be considered for the Festival until Sept. 3. Films can be of any length and genre, but must have been released within the last five years and feature baseball as a primary or secondary theme.

To submit a film for the 2019 Baseball Film Festival, please send three DVD copies to: Manager of Public Programs, National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, 25 Main Street, Cooperstown, NY, 13326. Films selected will be screened at the Museum during the Baseball Film Festival.

Tickets for each screening are free but must be reserved. Participants in the Museum’s Membership Program can reserve tickets starting Sept. 9 by calling 607-547-0397. Any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public starting Sept. 16.
