Welcome to the third annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival—a yearly video contest in which kid filmmakers create movies that tell the entire story of a Newbery award-winning book in 90 seconds or less. We screen annually in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, and Tacoma!
Make your FREE reservation to the CHICAGO PREMIERE of the third annual 90-Second Newbery! The screening is hosted by film festival founder and children's author James Kennedy, with co-host Keir Graff (author of the children's book The Other Felix). The creativity in the movies we've received this year has been astonishing—by turns hilarious, ingenious, and inspiring.
This year, the 90-Second Newbery will screen on Saturday, February 1 from 3-5 pm at the Adventure Stage Chicago at the Vittum Theater at 1012 N. Noble.
Tickets are free. Judging from past screenings, this is likely to "sell out," so please reserve your seat to ensure admittance.
