90-Second Newbery Film Festival 2017 - BOSTON AREA SCREENING
Sun, April 30, 2017, 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
Welcome to the sixth annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival—a yearly video contest in which kid filmmakers create weird short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery award-winning books in about 90 seconds.
We screen the best movies annually in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, San Antonio, and many other cities—and this year, for the first time, in conjunction with ArtWeek Boston, we're coming to the Boston area!
Make your FREE reservation for the BOSTON AREA screening of this year's 90-Second Newbery at the Brookline Public Library! The screening is hosted by film festival founder and children's author James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) along with co-host National Book Award winner M.T. Anderson (Feed, The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, and Symphony for the City of the Dead)
The movies we've received are hilarious, ingenious, and inspiring. We'll be showing movies received from Boston and the best from around the the country.
This year, the Boston-area 90-Second Newbery will screen on Sunday, April 30 from 2-4 pm at the Brookline Public Library (361 Washington Street, Brookline, MA) in Hunneman Hall.
Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance.
(Want to make your own 90-Second Newbery? There's still time for Boston-area submissions. The special Boston deadline is April 8, 2017. Complete details at the 90-Second Newbery website: http://www.90secondnewbery.com)
We rely on your donations to keep going. If you like us, please help us out! We run this film festival on a shoestring. No donation is too small. You can make your tax-deductible donation here.
The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is under the fiscal sponsorship of the Northwestern Settlement 501(c)(3).
