90-Second Newbery Film Festival

Nov 12th, 2014

An Enrichment opportunity for Kid Filmmakers and Creative Types!

The 90-Second Newbery is now accepting video submissions from Minnesota’s young filmmakers.  Selected Minnesota-made movies will be screened with submissions from other states at the first-ever Minnesota 90-Second Newbery Film Festival in February.

How to Participate

A 90-Second Newbery film tells the story of a Newbery Award winner or honor book in 90 seconds or less. We’d love to see our highly creative Annunciation students submit a movie. The 90-Second Newbery website features dozens of films to spark ideas, how-to guides and complete instructions for uploading films. The submission deadline for consideration in February’s screening is December 20, 2014.

What’s Next

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival will be hosted by author (The Order of Odd-Fish) and 90-Second Newbery founder James Kennedy and renowned local author Kelly Barnhill (The Witch’s Boy).   The festival is free and open to all -Saturday, February 28, 2015 from 3:00-4:30 pm at Hennepin County Library — Minneapolis Central’s Pohlad Hall.
