The Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills has chosen the winning logo for the Millburn Film Fest. Jake Oleson, a junior at Millburn High School, was presented with a $100 I-tunes gift card from the Education Foundation of Millburn-Short Hills for his winning design. Jake said he wanted to create a logo that would incorporate both Millburn and film together. He created a bold mill house design with a film reel used instead of a water mill.
Now, students at Millburn High School and Millburn Middle School are gearing up to work on their films for submission to the First annual Millburn Film Fest. Deadline for film entries is February 16, 2012. The red carpet premier for viewing the films will be April 11, 2012 at the Millburn High School Auditorium.
