Loren Coleman – Fact or Fake? The Patterson-Gimlin Film at Fifty

Taking the long view of the famed Patterson-Gimlin footage, director of the International Cryptozoology Museum, Loren Coleman, reviews whether the 1967 film today is seen as a mellow mature milestone or a fading fragile fake by different populations of Bigfooters, scientists, and the public.

Established in 2001 as the original annual Bigfoot Conference in Texas by the Texas Bigfoot Research Center. Craig Woolheater, Monica Rawlins, Gino Napoli.
