Millburn Film Festival Coming on April 11


MILLBURN, NJ - The second annual Millburn Film Fest is taking place at the Millburn High School auditorium on April 11, at 7 p.m. The festival, presented by the Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills, will feature a variety of short films created by the students in the Millburn/Short hills school districts. Last year, the festival was a huge success, with more than 500 people attending. The films were quite liked by the audience last year and judging from the preview trailer, the films will get quite a reaction this year.

Attendees have the opportunity to walk the red carpet at the festival and get a photo to take home. All of the money raised by the project will go toward programs and equipment for Millburn Public School students.

The nine winning films that are going to be at the festival are: A Starry Night, Shadows, Destiny, The Game, Jeff, Pack Mule, Whispers in the Attic, Super, and Tempus:

“Destiny,” created by Will Politan and is about the Millburn boys Varsity soccer team, their friendship, and how against all odds, they win games in the last few seconds.

“The Game,” filmed by Jason Aziz is about two people just playing a video game when something unexpected happens. It stars Jake Karen, Sam Karen, and Mariam Aziz.

Jake Oleson filmed “Jeff” about his father and how Jake tried to reconnect with him even after his death.

“Pack Mule,” edited, written and filmed by Max Retik is funny and tells the audience that even the best artists occasionally need to stop and take notice of the world around them.

“Whispers in the Attic,” edited, filmed, and directed by Hannah Boland, and co written by Hannah and Yael Bloom, is about a young women reminiscing in an attic connecting with people of her past with the art she makes.
