Welcome to the sixth annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival—a yearly video contest in which kid filmmakers create 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, Portland, and many other cities—including Tacoma, WA!
Make your FREE reservation to the TACOMA 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, Tacoma's own hilarious Doug Mackey.
The movies we've received are hilarious, ingenious, and inspiring! We'll be showing movies received from Tacoma and around the the country!
This year, the Tacoma 90-Second Newbery will screen on Saturday, February 11 from 3-5 pm at the Tacoma Public Library (1102 Tacoma Ave S). Come early for the 2:15 red-carpet reception!
Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance.
