George Chando, Phillipsburg Area Chamber Chair
Last month, Phillipsburg High School transformed into a red carpet affair for the premiere of the new Phillipsburg Movie – a brand-new documentary created by Lou Reda Productions. This 19-minute film captured the spirit of Phillipsburg through historical footage of many of our town’s beloved traditions and interviews with current residents. At the same time, the documentary pointed toward the bright future of our growing town. By showcasing everything Phillipsburg has to offer, the short film will serve as a marketing tool to attract new businesses, homeowners, developers, and investors to town.
Phillipsburg public officials, business owners, community members, and families flocked to the September premiere of this film. The free event included a reception, a brief presentation by the Mayor and Chamber representatives, the movie premiere, and concluded with a discussion with the filmmakers. Audience members raved about the impact of the film, its artistic portrayal of the town, and their renewed pride in our community.
Thank you to everyone who made this film possible, as well as all those who came out to celebrate Phillipsburg’s past, present and future at the premiere of this documentary. We hope to see you all at our upcoming Phillipsburg events, including the inaugural Pork Roll Palooza, Easton-Phillipsburg Halloween Parade, and Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony!
