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 City, Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Boston, and many other cities—including Portland, OR!
Make your FREE reservation to the PORTLAND screening of this year's 90-Second Newbery! The screening is hosted by film festival founder and children's author James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) along with author Keir Graff (Matchstick Castle) with special co-host, Portland's own Dale Basye (Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go).
The movies we've received are hilarious, ingenious, and inspiring. We'll be showing movies received from Portland and the best from around the the country!
This year, the Portland 90-Second Newbery will screen on Sunday, February 12 from 4:30-6:00 pm at the Hollywood Theatre (4122 NE Sandy Blvd).
Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance.
