Otsego County Is Becoming a Magnet for Film Locations

Otsego County, with its breathtaking landscapes and rich history, is rapidly becoming a favorite destination for filmmakers. The latest project to set up shop in this picturesque area is “Zombie Apache,” a horror-comedy that promises to bring both thrills and laughs to the big screen. Thanks to the pioneering efforts of Film Otsego, this dynamic organization is transforming Otsego County into a premier filmmaking destination, providing educational opportunities for local youth and stimulating economic growth.


For Coleman and Heather Covington, life in Otsego County is pretty sweet. As the owners of Five Kids Bakehouse, a bakery and cafe in Gilbertsville, their breads, pastries, and coffee fuel the local community. What started with selling Heather’s homemade baked goods from their front porch grew to a retail location in June 2021, thanks…
