Jaws fans from around the world descended upon Martha's Vineyard (aka "Amity Island") for JAWSFEST: The Tribute (CLICK HERE) this past weekend. The annual, four-day, fan-driven event took place August 9-12, 2012, to celebrate the legacy of Steven Spielberg's film and how it has impacted the lives of those who came to Amity in 1974. The tribute event also paid homage to the men and women of Jaws who have passed with a special focus on Peter Benchley, Roy Scheider and Robert Shaw.

The event coincides with Universal Studios' 100th Anniversary celebration and the August 14th release of the Jaws Blu-ray. Featuring an all-new, digitally remastered and fully restored picture, as well as 7.1 surround sound, the Jaws Blu-ray includes over 4 hours of bonus features including an all-new documentary: "The Shark is Still Working."

We have video from this past weekend's JAWSFEST. Check it out as fans bring Amity Island back to life.
