MILLBURN, NJ - Creating a masterpiece takes hard work and dedication and each year students from Millburn create beautiful, touching and amazing films that are put in the spotlight at the Millburn Film Fest. For the past six years the Millburn Film Fest allows students to have an outlet in this community and encourages them to go on to showcase their work in local and international film festivals.  2017 MFF winning filmmakers, Alex DeRosa, sophomore at MHS, and Kyle Farscht, junior at MHS, have been busy at film festivals as well as creating new films. 

Alex’s animated film “Lyric” was the overall winner of 2017 Millburn Film Fest and received first place in the animated short category of the Black Maria NJ Young Filmmakers Festival held at Thomas Edison National Historical Park, home of the very first movie studio. “Lyric “ was an official selection at the All American High School Film Festival and was chosen as a teen short finalist in the prestigious Woodstock Film Festival where Alex got to be part of a panel discussion.

Kyle has also been busy entering his films in festivals. “Soulfege - The A Cappella Experience” won second place at the Millburn Film Fest, placed as a finalist in the NJ High School Film Festival in the nonfiction category, and was an official selection of the 2017 All American High School Film Festival.  “Flash,” also a winning film at Millburn Film Fest, was an official selection at the Princeton University Film Festival.
