The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers create short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery award-winning books in about 90 seconds.

For eight years we've screened the best kid-made movies annually in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and many other cities—including right here in Utah!

This year's screening will be made virtual for you and yours to enjoy from the comfort of your homes. Dress up the whole family for the at-home screening, which will be launched Saturday, October 3rd at 6pm! Follow this link to access the screening. https://tinyurl.com/y6kzmoqs The screening is hosted by the fabulous children's authors James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and Keir Graff (The Tiny Mansion).

We'll be showing movies made by kids in Utah and some of the best from around the country.
