Event Details

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers create short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery award-winning books in about 90 seconds.

For eight years we've screened the best kid-made movies annually in New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and many other cities—including right here in Oakland!

Make your FREE reservation for the OAKLAND screening of this year's 90-Second Newbery! The screening is hosted by children's authors James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and Marcus Ewert (Mr. Pack Rat Really Wants That, Mummy Cat, and more).

We'll be showing movies made by kids in Oakland and some of the best from around the country.

This year, the Oakland 90-Second Newbery will screen on Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 12:00-1:00 pm at the Rockridge branch of the Oakland Public Library. James's and Marcus's books will be available for sale, and you can hang out with the authors and filmmakers!

Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance. Although a reservation is recommended, you don't have to bring a printed ticket.

(Interested in making your own 90-Second Newbery for next year? You can find complete details, plus video resources, at the 90-Second Newbery website: http://www.90secondnewbery.com.)

We rely on your support to keep the 90-Second Newbery going! If you like what we do, please consider making a donation here.

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival (founded in 2011) is an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers create weird short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in about 90 seconds.

Ever since 1922, the Newbery Medal has been recognized as the most prestigious award in children’s literature. But any classic book, no matter how worthy and somber, turns into something fresh and bonkers when compressed into 90 seconds. Here are 25 standouts from the hundreds of kid-made videos we've received over the years: http://bit.ly/2cbDC1r

The best of each year's movies are shown at FREE yearly screenings across the country, in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, San Antonio, Minneapolis, and many other cities--co-hosted by author James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and other children's authors. These free shows combine screenings of the kids' movies with live comedy bits, and have been a smash hit from the start, with crowds of hundreds, including the young filmmakers themselves.
