KidsLIVE: 90-Second Newbery Film Festival 2014


March 22, 2014

The 90-Second Newbery returns for its third year! This is an annual video contest in which young filmmakers create movies that creatively compress the stories of Newbery Award-winning books into 90 seconds or less.

The NYC screening of the 90-Second Newbery films will be at the New York Public Library's Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Saturday, March 22, 2014 and will be hosted by film festival founder and children's author James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) with a special co-host: New York's own Libba Bray (Printz Medal winner, author of Going Bovine and many other fantastic books). Don't miss out on your chance to see these quick, funny versions of your favorite classics!

Tickets are free! However, this event has been crowded in the past, so please reserve your seat to ensure admittance.
