G-FEST XXVI breaks attendance record

G-FEST XXVI set a new attendance record, with about 3,500 G-fans taking part. Akira Takarada, the Godfather of G-FEST, drew massive crowds for his sessions and autograph signings, at what may well have been his fourth and final visit. He accepted the G-FAN Lifetime Achievement Award for his incredible body of work. Director Shusuke Kaneko was very warmly received and was presented with the coveted Mangled Skyscraper Award for his contributions to the kaiju genre. Actress Peggy Neal, director Yoshikazu Ishii, and model maker Takuji Yamada also added to the excitement of the show. All activities and sessions were full to capacity, and there was a huge turnout for the movies at the Pickwick Theatre. For full details, pick up a copy of G-FAN #125, on sale in late September. Thanks to all who made G-FEST XXVI an unqualified success! Next year’s G-FEST will be held from July 10th through the 12th, with the double double feature film festival on July 9th.
