Part One
The Mega fest was filled with extra ordinary films from film makers from all over the world and I will write a few articles to cover the seminars, award dinners and screenings because I want everyone to be recognized for their talents. Mega fest was held at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas July 24-August 3, 2019 by the founder and creator Del and Theresa Weston.

Jerry Valastro won “Best Drama” and “Best Score “for his film “Solstice” that he made 25 years ago.  The film was restored with new music performed by the Budapest Scoring Orchestra. Jerry Valastro wrote, produced, directed and edited the film which starred Michael Kelly. It is a heartwarming story of the spirit of Christmas that is portrayed beautifully by Michael Kelley. Click on the link, to see the making and behind the scenes of Solstice and enjoy the magic of Christmas that Jerry Valastro is sharing with us Jerry is such a kind loving soul and it was wonderful meeting and speaking to him and I know there will be other great films to be made by him.

Another stand out film was a Greek Tragedy “Nothing beyond Measure”, the tragedy of Antigone by Sophocles, and a conflict between human and divine laws. It was mesmerizing to watch the performance of Alessandro Vantini who is a wonderful actor and who gave a perfect performance, on an empty set, only relying on the text and his acting skills. 

I will write additional stories on Megafest next week.
