In 1974, a group of filmmakers arrived on Martha’s Vineyard to make a movie, based on a popular best-selling novel. The movie - JAWS©.
The impact of that film on popular culture and the entertainment industry is legendary. Now, thirty years later in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the filming of Jaws, the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber of Commerce will launch Jaws Fest, an annual 3-day event for Jaws fans from around the globe.


Jaws Fest '05 Official Event Details
Event Dates: June 3 - 5, 2005

Jaws Fest begins as guests arrive by ferry or plane and are greeted with signage and banners welcoming them to AMITY ISLAND. Local businesses will again display their 1975 signage from the filming, and over 25 members of the original cast & crew return to Amity for a fabulous weekend celebration. See schedule of events for where and when to see cast & crew.

Jaws will be playing on the big screen in local theaters as Peter Benchley, Carl Gottlieb, Joe Alves and Roy Arbogast, Shari Rhodes and others oversee the ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00am Friday morning to kick-off the 3-day event. At 10:30 Carl Gottlieb and Bill Gilmore will sign autographs at The Harborside Inn and Joe Alves will present a wonderful anamatics display and discussion on how the Jaws special effects were created at the Whaling Church.

Mid-day Friday, the fans will travel to the Tabernacle in Oak Bluffs, the neighboring town, to hear Peter Benchley speak at 1:30 pm about his experiences with Jaws and the “star” of the movie--the Great White Shark.

Later that night, at the beach at Owen Park in Vineyard Haven, Mike Haydn will play the music from the opening scene of the movie while a bonfire burns on the beach. Shortly afterward, Jaws will be shown on an outdoor movie screen creating a one-of-a-kind viewing experience on Vineyard Haven Harbor.

We are pleased to announce that Universal Studios will be bringing the launch of the 30th anniversary JAWS DVD to Jaws Fest. Check back for more information on where you can be the first to see this new footage.

At the West Tisbury Grange Hall, just up from Alleys General Store, the worlds largest display of authentic Jaws props, memorabilia and private photography will be open to the public, allowing fans to experience JAWS - BEHIND THE SCREAMS all weekend long. This in-depth look at the impact of Jaws, how the film was made, rare behind-the-scenes photographs, costumes and screen-used props, will be supplemented by the showing of numerous documentaries about Jaws and the impact this ground-breaking movie has had on our culture.

In Vineyard Haven, the Chamber of Commerce office will serve as a central location where fans can obtain JAWS FEST SCHEDULES OF EVENTS & AMITY ISLAND MAPS that detail where the hallmark scenes from the film occurred. Participants can sign up for Island-wide Jaws tours to visit the many filming locations and participate in a weekend long TRIVIA HUNT where they can test their Jaws knowledge and win prizes at the closing events.

JAWS-FROM THE INSIDE OUT will present a series of educational forums and discussions with cast and experts as VIP speakers. These include:

• Sharks, Great Whites & the Waters Around Amity Island: Greg Skomal & Aidan Martin, shark experts and marine biologists to speak.
• JAWS Place in Film History: Carl Gottlieb, Stephen Prince, Joe Fordham, Bill Gilmore
• A Mechanical Shark, Floating Faces and Other Special Effects: Joe Alves, Greg Nicotero, Roy Arbogast
• Locals, Not Just “Extras” & More: including casting director Shari Rhodes, Jeff Voorhees (Alex Kinter), Jay Mello (Sean Brody), Bob Carroll (selectman); and Jeffrey Kramer (Hendricks).

(Edgartown) AMITY TOWN HALL will be a VIP hub on Saturday where fans can mingle and obtain autographs from members of the cast and crew in the back meeting room used in the film. A detailed schedule of signings will be available by May 5th. Those confirmed to date include:

• Joe Alves
• Carl Gottlieb
• Jeffrey Kramer
• Jay Mello
• Greg Nicotero
• Marc Gilpin
• Bill Gilmore
• Lee Fierro
• Bob Carroll
• Jonathan Searle
• Steven Searle
• Jeff Voorhees
• Kristy Kingsbury Henshaw
• Edith Blake
• Shari Rhodes
• Roy Arbogast

Please note, Peter Benchley will be attending Jaws Fest but will not be signing autographs at the event.

On Saturday night, the AMITY BALL will bring fans together at the Hot Tin Roof at the airport for a celebration that will be the highlight of the weekend. Mingle and take photos with the cast & crew, hear great live music from Entrain, enjoy great food and desserts provided by Island chefs. Special guest appearances and a silent auction are also planned for this event.

Throughout the weekend participants will have the opportunity to become part of the Jaws legacy as Jaws Fest becomes part of the filming for a new documentary-in-the-making: JAWS - THE SHARK IS STILL WORKING, by James-Michael Roddy & Erik Hollander. Pre-production screenings from this documentary, focusing on the enduring legacy of the Jaws films, as well as interviews with production personnel, fans and celebrities that were inspired by the film will be shown in a variety of venues across the Island.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Shark Half Marathon has been canceled. Please check back next year.

The closing event of the weekend will be the JAWS FEAST, A TRADITIONAL NEW ENGLAND CLAMBAKE including lobster, chowder, steamers, corn, chicken & more where fans can gather, share their weekend experiences, mingle with cast & crew and receive prizes for the trivia hunt. Numerous VIP’s will also be available for autograph signings at this event.

SPECIAL VIP AND CELEBRITY DINNER OPPORTUNITIES are also in development and will allow a very limited number of fans the opportunity to experience a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with their favorite actor or production expert. Details on how to obtain Platinum and Gold event passes which will be required for these events is detailed on the Tickets and registration page of this site.

Wouldn't it be super cool if a real shark started feeding there around that time?

My memory of that scene. I'm 7 and my mom had a big tub of popcorn. Ben pops out and the popcorn bucket goes flying 4 rows and lands on some people.

While everyone is here, I have a Jaws question.

I'll spoiler tag just in case someone hasn't seen the first three movies....

Spoiler:
Did the sharks in Jaws 1, 2, and 3 die by gas explosion (compresed air), electricity (power cable), and explosives (bomb) respectively?

yes. What? No love for 4?

I'd love to go to this thing. Too expensive for means. But it'd be wonderful if the movie gets some big screen showing's around the country for the anniversary.

Seeing that Jaws is my favorite movie, I wish I could go. My wife even said I should, but cash flow is a bit tight right now after attending Celebration 3. [sigh]

It's not that (but none at all). It has to do with another shark movie.

Spoiler:
Deep Blue Sea has multiple references to Jaws 1-3, including how each of the the three sharks are killed. I wasn't sure I remember how the shark died in Jaws 3.

But, Jaws The Revenge is one the greatest comedies ever made

Spoiler:
It's worth viewing just to see Michael Caine battling a great white shark and Mario Van Peebles with that awful hair and accent And in 3 I think the shark is killed by the homemade grenades that the "crocodile hunter" type guy had brought

Make sure you all wear your heavy wool sweaters. It will be June, after all - no sense chancing it with the weather.

Take the example set by all the people in the movie Jaws - practically all of them were wearing sweaters on the Fourth of July weekend. Must be the chill off the ocean...
