Calling All Kid Filmmakers!
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 You Can Help
A 90-Second Newbery film tells the story of a Newbery Award winner or honor book in 90 seconds or less. Minnesota librarians would love to see our state’s creative kids submit their movies. 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. Please help spread the word about this fun opportunity.
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).
Gather on Saturday, February 28, 2015 from 3:00-4:30 pm at Hennepin County Library — Minneapolis Central’s Pohlad Hall. The festival is free and open to all.
