About JAWSFEST JAWSFEST was brought to life in 2005 on Martha’s Vineyard (also known as Amity) when celebrating the 30th anniversary of the film. The festival celebrates the movie, its legacy, the cast, but most importantly, sharks. This year there will be a first-time screening of the movie in Blu-Ray, as well as an island-wide trivia hunt based on the film, live reenactments of many scenes, and a series of panel discussions called “Living Jaws,” where those who were involved with the making of the film will talk about their experiences. The Daniel Fisher House in Edgartown will host a pop-up museum called “Behind the Screams,” which will feature memorabilia and life-size replicas of the characters Quint, Hooper, and Brody standing on the bow of the Orca.
This year is also the 25th anniversary of the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, and shark specialists will be providing education and awareness about conservation efforts.
