“We couldn’t be more excited to cut the ribbon and fully launch Phiphen Studios in Englewood Cliffs,” said Connors, COO of Phiphen Studios and CEO and Founder of Phiphen. “It’s been a labor of love for our team and we’re so excited to welcome the film industry and our community to the studio.”

“We want to establish that New Jersey itself has its own identity to make amazing movies and we are so grateful to share this moment with all of you,” Sinisi said, Phiphen Studios CEO. “This is a major milestone for the film community and the people of New Jersey, one that should be celebrated.”

“New Jersey is the birthplace of Solax, the first female-run studio built in the early 1900s by the extraordinary movie mogul and filmmaker Alice Guy-Blache,” said Secretary of State Tahesha Way. “We have now come full circle in welcoming women-owned company, Phiphen Studios, to the state and wish them much success.”

The new facility offers 10,000 square feet of post-production and office space, in addition to a 25-seat 4K theater, executive suites, conference rooms, kitchens and outdoor space. It is part of the growing production infrastructure throughout New Jersey, which has included the construction of several major studios in recent years, including Palisade Stages and 10 studios in the basin in Kearny, Cinelease Studios Caven Point in Jersey City and Sustainable Studios in Moonachie.

“New Jersey continues to attract the kind of critical infrastructure that can support our burgeoning film and television industry and utilize our skilled workforce,” Governor Phil Murphy said. “We are thrilled to add Phiphen Studios to our growing production community and look forward to welcoming the following studios that plan to join us here in the Garden State.”

“Phiphen Studios joins a community of thoughtful entertainment industry leaders who recognize New Jersey’s clear advantage in film production,” said Tim Sullivan, CEO of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
