90-Second Newbery Film Festival

2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
Harold Washington Library Center


Join film festival founder James Kennedy (author of The Order of Odd-Fish) and Keir Graff (author of The Tiny Mansion and many other books) as they present the best 90-Second Newbery movies we've received this year, from Chicago and around the country. 

The 90-Second Newbery is an annual film festival in which kid filmmakers create short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in about 90 seconds (adult help OK). These movies often have a creative twist—think "Charlotte’s Web" in the style of a horror movie, or "Ramona and Her Father" reimagined as a musical, or "Bridge to Terabithia" done in stop-motion animation!
