What is the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival?
The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is a contest open to anyone, but especially to kids and teens: Create a video that compresses the story of a Newbery award-winning book into 90 seconds or less, using (at least mostly) kid & teen actors. Books that have won the Newbery Medal or Newbery Honor are fair game. The best videos received are shown at annual 90-Second Newbery Film Festival screenings in New York City, Chicago, Portland and now Tacoma.
Call for Entries!
Want to make a film? Here are the rules:
- It should be 90 seconds or less, and it has to be about a Newbery-medal or honor‐winning book.
- We don’t want book trailers. We want full-on dramatizations that tell the entire story of a book in a ridiculously short amount of time.
- Upload video to YouTube or Vimeo. Send the link, with subject line, “90 SECOND NEWBERY,” to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Deadline is February 9, 2013
- No video? Come to the film festival anyway!
