Event description

Description

Welcome to the eighth 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 kid-made movies annually in New York, San Francisco, Boston, and many other cities—including, for the seventh year in a row, right here in Chicago!

Make your FREE reservation for the CHICAGO screening of this year's 90-Second Newbery at the Chicago Public Library! The screening is hosted by children's authors James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and Keir Graff (The Phantom Tower) with special guest Mary Winn Heider (The Mortification of Fovea Munson).

The movies we've received are hilarious, ingenious, and inspiring. We'll be showing movies made by kids in Chicago and the best from around the country.

This year, the Chicago 90-Second Newbery will screen on Sunday, March 10, 2019 from 1:45-3:30 pm at the Harold Washington Public Library (400 S. State Street) in the Pritzker Auditorium.

Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance.

The books of the hosts, plus many Newbery-winning books, will be available for sale courtesy of Booked children's bookstore of Evanston.

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

We rely on your donations to keep going. If want us to keep doing this, 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 Fractured Atlas 501(c)(3).
