Many thanks to Diane Kachmar for sharing her photos and comments about the Festival.

David Hedison signs a Fly poster for a fan on Thursday, June 2, the first day of the Memphis Film Festival's tribute to The Fly/Return of the Fly with David Hedison and Brett Halsey.

The two 'flys' David Hedison and Brett Halsey pose with attendees after the Film Festival's Awards Banquet on Saturday, June 14.


The Film Festival decided that since they were in-between David's (May 20) and Brett's (June 20) birthdays, they should have a birthday cake after their panel. The audience joined in the celebration and sang to them.
