JawsFest 3 Premieres in Chicopee, MA

Last December, I posted a review of two JawsFest DVDs produced by Lou and Dianna "Yana" Pisano (you can see the review here). These fan-made DVDs are feature-length love letters to the Jaws franchise, and they provide Jaws fans with footage of the original JawsFest event that was held in 2005 and tours of various locations throughout Martha's Vineyard where scenes from three of the Jaws movies were shot. Now, almost a year later, the Pisanos have completed the third and final chapter of the their Jaws fan appreciation trilogy, JawsFest 3: The Invasion of JawsFest '10, and they held a premiere showing of it last weekend in Chicopee, Massachusetts. From what I've heard, the event was a big success in spite of the unexpected snow storm that slammed the east coast during the last weekend of October.

JawsFest 3 is a two-disc DVD set, with over three hours of Jaws fan-friendly footage. One of the bonus features is a documentary produced and directed by Justin White called "The Making Of Lou and Yana's JawsFest Trilogy". The set also includes a map of Martha's Vineyard that identifies the locations where Jaws was shot--an ideal collectible for any Jaws fan who one day plans on visiting these same locations in the future. I already placed my pre-order for the set, so expect to see a review here in a few weeks. Click here to place your pre-order of JawsFest 3 and to order copies of the first two JawsFest DVDs.

Also, be sure to pick up the latest issue of SCREAM magazine that features Lou Pisano's article, "The Guts of Jaws 2: Appreciating an Underappreciated Sequel". Order your copy of issue 8 of SCREAM magazine here.


  1. Hi Tim! I just wanted to let you and your readers know that we recently announced JAWSFEST: The Tribute, taking place on Martha's Vineyard August 9-12, 2012. This three-day fan-centric event will explore the experiences, filming, and memories from the making of JAWS. Our tribute will concentrate on the men and women of JAWS who have passed, with special focus on Peter Benchley, Roy Scheider, and Robert Shaw. We are inviting fans, families, cast, and crew to join us in Amity (Martha’s Vineyard) to share their personal stories, memorabilia, and experiences. This event will explore how the making of JAWS has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974 and how the blockbuster film they created continues to impact lives today. Please see our website for more information: http://www.jawstribute.com.

  2. Thanks for the update, Jill! I'll be sure to check the Jaws Tribute site--this sounds like it's going to be a blast!
