Register for 90-Second Moviemakers!

Little Boy Filming With Video Camera In Front Of Blackboard

BEGINS JANUARY 18 AND ENDS MARCH 15
Interested in moviemaking? Want to see your films on the big screen? Become a 90-Second Moviemaker, and all your dreams will come true.
During this eight-week-long program, students will condense the plot of a Newbery Award- or Honor-winning book into a short, 90 second-long video, which they will write, film, and perform themselves. The final result will be submitted to the 90-Second Newbery Festival and hosted at a live screening at the Brookline Interactive Group Studio!
Participants must commit to attending every session. For ages eight and up.
Brought to you by the Friends of the Brookline Library and the Brookline Interactive Group.
