*The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival*
The 90‐Second Newbery Film Festival is a video contest in which filmmakers of any age (but mostly kids & teens) make movies that hilariously and creatively compress the story of Newbery award winning books into 90 seconds or less. Kids, teens, and adults are invited to make and submit a video based on a Newbery award winning book. The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival has been held in New York & Chicago to rave reviews, and now author James Kennedy brings this hilarious event to Tacoma.
