The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is a yearly video
contest in which kid filmmakers create weird short movies that tell the
entire stories of Newbery award-winning books in about 90 seconds.
screening is hosted by film festival founder and children's author
James Kennedy ("The Order of Odd-Fish") along with author Keir Graff
("Matchstick Castle") with special co-host, Portland's own Dale Basye
("Heck: Where the Bad Kids Go").
The movies we've received are
hilarious, ingenious, and inspiring. We'll be showing movies received
from Portland and the best from around the the country!
