The Millburn Film Festival premiered Friday April 1st at Millburn High School. The Art Advisory Committee was there to see the winning films, and they were presented to perfection on the new screen and sound system in the auditorium.
Now in its 5th year, festival Coordinators Lynn Farscht and Alyssa Russo once again skillfully presented an evening showcasing local students’ films, complete with red carpet and spotlights. This year, all filmmakers took to the stage before the films were screened, and winners were announced. The top winner was “Door After Door” by Jasen Aziz.
MHS Teachers Ellen Krueger and Gabe Rhodes were honored before the screening, with a special video made by some of their current and past students, to celebrate all the influence they have had on fledgling filmmakers over the years.
Once again, all proceeds from the evening support the Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills, which enhances the educational experience of Millburn public school students with their donations. The Art Committee is proud to once again have been selected to be judges for such an inspiring and entertaining event of student films.
