The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest, culminating in live events, in which young filmmakers make movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in about 90 seconds. For eight years, the 90-Second Newbery has showcased the best entries at annual screenings in fourteen cities across the country such as New York, Chicago, San Francisco—and right here in Boston! The screenings are hosted by festival founder James Kennedy (author of The Order of Odd-Fish) and other authors like Jon Scieszka, Linda Sue Park, Rita Williams-Garcia, and M.T. Anderson. In this workshop, James Kennedy will screen some of the best videos submitted and show participants how to create their own movies, providing practical advice for young filmmakers and the teachers, librarians, and families who might want to participate in the 90-Second Newbery in the future. (The deadline for next year’s screenings is January 10, 2020!)
