The Utah 2020 90-Second Newbery Film Festival: Online Screening!

Hello, 90-Second Newbery fans in Utah! We had planned to do our 2020 Utah screenings of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival back in March, at the the libraries of Salt Lake City and Orem, as well as the Treehouse Museum in Ogden. But like many public events lately, we’ve had to rethink that!

Instead, our friends at Utah Humanities have arranged it such that we will do an ONLINE screening of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival! On October 3, 2020 at 6 pm MST, the Utah 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 all over Utah, plus a few of the best movies we’ve received from around the country.

You won’t want to miss it! But actually, it’s okay if you miss it, because the video will be available on this page permanently after the premiere as well. So even if you can’t be there for the premiere on October 3 at 6 pm, you’ll always be able to come back to this page and see the Utah 90-Second Newbery Film Festival.

I’m so excited to share with you not only the best movies I’ve received this year from Utah, but also all over the country! Bookmark this page, and see you back here on October 3!
