Author (The Order of Odd Fish) and founder of the 90-second Newbery Film Festival, James Kennedy, is bringing his annual video contest to the Eisenhart Auditorium at the Rochester Museum & Science Center on February 1st!
As always, reservations are free, but they do ask that you reserve a seat in advance. 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. It is always a LOT of fun. This year, James will be joined on stage by Rochester’s own, Bruce Coville.
More information about the festival, and submission information, is available at: http://www.90secondnewbery.com.
The Event will be held Saturday, February 1 from 2:00 – 3:30 pm.
