Welcome to the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival—an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers create short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery award-winning books in about 90 seconds.
For seven years we've screened the best kid-made movies annually in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and many other cities—including right here in Boston!
Make your FREE reservation for the BOSTON screening of this year's 90-Second Newbery! The screening is hosted by children's authors James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and National Book Award winner M.T. Anderson (Feed, Octavian Nothing).
The movies we've received are amazing! We'll be showing movies made by kids in Boston and some of the best from around the country.
This year, the Boston 90-Second Newbery will screen on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 2-4 pm at the Central Library of the Boston Public Library in Copley Square (700 Boylston St).
Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance. Ticketholders should arrive at least ten minutes before the event. At that time, we'll open the program up to all patrons and seating will no longer be guaranteed.
This program is sponsored by the Boston Public Library, with additional support from the Writers' Room of Boston.
