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

Hello, 90-Second Newbery fans in Minnesota! We had planned to do our 2020 Minnesota screening of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival at the Central Library in Minneapolis. But like all public events lately, we’ve had to rethink that.

Instead, the Minnesota State Library Services has arranged it such that we will do an ONLINE screening of the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival! In the hourlong video above, join film festival founder James Kennedy (author of The Order of Odd-Fish) as we watch the best kid-made 90-Second Newbery videos from all over Minnesota: from Apple Valley to Spring Grove, from Victoria to Minnetonka, from St. James to Delano, and more! Plus some of the best movies we’ve received from around the country this year.

I’m so excited to share these amazing creative kid-made movies of Newbery-winning books! 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
