RHS Senior Wins Grand Prize In Filmmakers Competition

Randolph High School senior and mass media student Gabriella Cecala’s film “I Remember” won the grand prize in the experimental category at the Montclair Film Festival’s “Emerginig Filmmakers” competition.
“I could not have done this without Mr. Finning,” said Cecala, who created the film at the NYU Summer Film Workshop.
Three other students at the NYU workshop helped produce the film.
RHS Mass Media Teacher Robert Finning said he was not surprised by Cecala’s award. “Gabby has always been one of my most prolific film students,” he said. “She is certainly well-deserving of this award. I am sure she’s about to begin bigger and better things.”
Cecala plans to attend New York University in the fall. She is enrolled in the Mass Media IV Honors class.
“I Remember” was to be screened at the festival with other emerging filmmaker films Sat., May 7 beginning at 11 a.m. at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair.
