FILM | 90-Second Newbery Film Festival


The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival, now in its fifth year, lets young filmmakers take a shot behind the camera to adapt or interpret a Newbery-winning book. But they only get 90 seconds to tell the story. From dramas and musicals to stop-motion, puppet shows, and even Minecraft recordings, the submissions are quite impressive. The best of those submissions are now on the road for a touring festival. The Rochester stop will be hosted by festival founder James Kennedy, and Newbery Medal winner Linda Sue Park.

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival will screen Sunday, April 3, at the Dryden Theatre, 900 East Avenue. 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are free, but reservations are recommended. The film festival will screen along with the Charlie Chaplin classic "The Immigrant.";
