Competition, Library Serf

And Another Global Competition

19.01.11 | 2 Comments

The 90 Second Newbery Film Festival is a worldwide competition in which entrants get the chance to condense a classic Newbery medal winning (or honour) book (see here for a list) into a 90 second dramatisastion.

It’s a (very little) bit like writing a haiku of an epic classic, but involving more effort and equipment, and the chance that your offering will be shown at a glitzy event at the New York Public Library. Deadline: 15 September 2011.

The first entry, for A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is here.

Thanks to the people at the National Library (NZ) for pointing this one out.

  1. This is James Kennedy, the co-curator of the 90-Second Newbery video contest (and the author of “The Order of Odd-Fish”). I’m thrilled to hear that our film festival might actually get participants from New Zealand! Please, please, I beg you, film something so our little contest can have some international verve. We’re looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
