The fourth annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival returns to the NY Public Library with two hours of short videos created by kids. This is an annual video contest in which young filmmakers create movies that creatively compress the stories of Newbery Award-winning books into 90 seconds or less.
The event is hosted by children’s author James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish), who is also the festival founder. This year there’s a special co-host, children’s author Ame Dyckman (Boy + Bot)).
Don’t miss out on your chance to see these quick, funny versions of your favorite classics. The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is 3-5pm, next Saturday, March 7 at the Celeste Bartos Forum in the main library building on Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street now called the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building,
Tickets are free, however reservations are required to ensure admittance.
