90-Second Newbery Film Festival at CFFS! (Ages 7+ Short Film Program)
Sunday, March 1 - 5PM
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. Creative takes on the material are encouraged -- think Charlotte's Web in the style of a horror movie, or Ramona Quimby, Age 8 done entirely with robots, or The Tale of Despereaux as a musical!
For eight years the 90-Second Newbery has screened the best kid-made movies annually in 14 cities across the USA including, starting this year, Seattle!
The screening, hosted by children's author James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and local author local author Sundee Frazier, will include films made by kids in the Seattle area and some of the best from around the country.
This program is a part of Northwest Film Forum's 15th Annual Children's Film Festival Seattle.
