Call For Entries: 90-Second Newbery Film Festival

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is now open for submissions! Young filmmakers (K-12) are invited to create a short film adaptation of a Newbery Medal winning or honor book. Help from an adult is okay, and surprising twists to the story are encouraged. National and local winners will have their films shown at the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival in the Main Library’s Auditorium. The deadline for submission is January 11, 2019.
