The Tacoma 2021 90-Second Newbery Film Festival: Online Screening!

Hello, Tacoma fans of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival! Usually we do our annual screenings of the best kid-made 90-Second Newbery movies live at libraries and theaters around the country. Our Tacoma shows are always a highlight of the year, with big crowds at the Rialto or the Blue Mouse or the Tacoma Public Library . . . however, in 2021, in light of the pandemic, we’re going to have to do things differently!

Instead, we are going to do an ONLINE screening of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival. On March 27, 2021 at 2 pm PST, the Tacoma 90-Second Newbery Film Festival will premiere right here on this page via an embedded YouTube, hosted by film festival founder James Kennedy (author of The Order of Odd-Fish) and author Keir Graff (The Tiny Mansion, The Phantom Tower, and The Matchstick Castle).

We’ll watch the best kid-made 90-Second Newbery videos from Tacoma in 2021!

You won’t want to miss it! But actually, it’s okay if you miss it, because the video of the show will be available on this page permanently after the premiere as well. So even if you can’t be there for the premiere on March 27 at 2 pm, you’ll always be able to come back to this page and see the 2021 Tacoma 90-Second Newbery Film Festival.

Bookmark this page, and see you back here on March 27, 2021! To learn more about the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival, including contest rules and details on how to participate next year, please visit our official website at www.90secondnewbery.com.

Thanks to the Tacoma Public Library for making this possible!
