Join us for the 2019 90-Second Newbery Film Festival!

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 seven years we've screened the best kid-made movies annually in Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and many other cities—including right here at the New York Public Library!

This year's screening is hosted by children's authors James Kennedy (The Order of Odd-Fish) and Newbery Honor winner Rita Williams-Garcia (One Crazy Summer).

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

Tickets are free! However, we recommend reserving your seat in advance to ensure admittance. REGISTER NOW!


For free events, we generally overbook to ensure a full house. Priority will be given to those who have registered in advance, but registration does not guarantee admission. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, and seats may become available at that time. A standby line will form one hour before the program.

Interested in making your own 90-Second Newbery for next year? Great! You can find complete details, plus video resources, at the 90-Second Newbery website.
