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 SAN FRANCISCO screening of the third annual 90-Second Newbery! The screening is hosted by film festival founder and children's author James Kennedy, with special co-host, San Francisco's own 2013 Newbery Medal winner Katherine Applegate (The One and Only Ivan). 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 8 from 4-5:30 pm at the San Francisco Public Library main branch in the Koret Auditorium.
Tickets are free. Please reserve your seat to ensure admittance.
