Celebrating the 70th Anniversary of Summer of the Saucers, filmmakers Steve Edmiston and Scott Schaefer provide a special presentation, “J. Edgar Hoover’s Flying Discs: Why the Maury Island Incident is the seminal event in modern popular culture relating to UFO’s, conspiracies, and cover-ups,” followed by the screening of their multiple award-winning film, The Maury Island Incident and an audience Q&A session.

The Maury Island Incident tells the forgotten, tragic story – taken directly from declassified FBI documents – of Harold Dahl's June 21, 1947, UFO sighting near Maury Island, and explores the origins of the iconic Men In Black within a conspiratorial mythology set during the “summer of the saucers” in 1947, all leading directly to FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

The film’s honors/awards include: 2015 UFO Congress Best Short Film; Big Island Film Festival Opening Night Gala; Washington Film Works Innovative Lab; Gig Harbor Film Festival Best Short; Seattle Int’l Film Festival World Premiere. The film was adapted into a web series and is not distributed on Hulu. Most recently, the film was celebrated with a Resolution on the floor of the Washington State Senate for its contribution to the history and popular culture of Washington State.
