5th Graders’ 90 Second Film Shorts

InstagramNews January 20, 2023

During library with Julia, our 5th graders teamed up to make shorts for The 90-Second Newbery Film Fest, which are now live on their website! The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which young filmmakers create weird short movies that tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in about 90 seconds. (Ever since 1922, the Newbery Medal has been recognized as the most prestigious award in children’s literature.)

Check out our students’ clever adaptations of New Kid by Jerry Craft and The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. 🎬
