Monday, October 13, 2014 - 3:00pm to 4:30pm

No need to travel to the gala screening in New York, James Kennedy brings the best of the fest to us! The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers create movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in 90 seconds or less. This family-friendly show will highlight some of the best entries and inspire kids to explore their own inner filmmaker. Best for ages 5+.
