90-Second Newbery is an annual video contest for young filmmakers created by author James Kennedy, challenging them to create a movie that compresses the story of a Newbery Award-winning book into 90 seconds or less. The possibilities are endless! How about Charlotte's Web as a superhero movie, or The Whipping Boy as a space opera? Learn more about 90-Second Newbery here.
CADL is having its own 90-Second Newbery contest, open to ages 8-18. Make your own 90-second Newbery film to win prizes and fame! Okay, maybe not fame, but a chance for your film to be seen on the big screen. We're celebrating local entries by showing them on the big screen, thanks to our promotional partners at Celebration Cinema Saturday, February 25, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. 200 E. Edgeweood Blvd. in Lansing

The winner was based on The Bears On Hemlock Mountain by Alice Dagliesh.
This one is based on Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Check out the great costume design!
