"Last year Bill Birnes gave a lively talk about the Roswell case that really knocked out our audience," says festival organizer and participant Jeremy Vaeni. "In the meantime his series UFO Hunters has become a huge hit on the History Channel and he'll be participating all three days of the festival this year." UFO festivals are popular around the country, says Vaeni, but Culture of Contact is the only comprehensive event in the New York area.
