Kids’ film festival

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 28 at the Boston Public Library, 700 Boylston St.

The festival, which screens annually in 14 cities nationwide, showcases movies made by kids that tell the stories of Newbery-winning books in about 90 seconds. At the Boston Public Library screening, festival founder James Kennedy, author of “The Order of Odd-Fish” and National Book Award winner M.T. Anderson, author of “Octavian Nothing” and “Landscape With Invisible Hand” will kick off the show with a song-and-dance skit that honors previous notable 90-Second Newbery movies – and will then screen some of the best kid-made 90-Second Newbery movies received this year, both from the Boston area and around the country. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
