90 Second Newberry Film Festival

Saturday, April 20, 2024, 2 p.m., Dryden Theatre

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which young 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.)

The movies received have been ingenious, hilarious, and impressive—from musicals to stop-motion Claymation, from puppet shows to animation!

The 13th annual festival is hosted by authors James Kennedy and Bruce Coville.

The event is free; however, registration is required.
