FEBRUARY 25


Hope Sessions: A Short Film to Premiere at MOA


We are living in tumultuous times. And Minneapolis has been seriously in the mix, everything from Pointergate to most recently Justice for Jamar.  Minneapolis / St. Paul residents share moving stories of how hope helped them SEE the light through the darkness.  Discussions revolve around social and economic justice, human rights, and life's challenges from a narrative framework of hope. The producer's hope is that we will all begin to SEE the truth more clearly. That is to say that we are ALL human beings. And that acknowledgement of the truth will be the salvation of the planet. 

Change begins with hope. Collective hope is change in action. Watch the trailer and pass it on to a friend. There is power in numbers.

The 90-Second Newbery Film Festival is an annual video contest in which kid filmmakers make movies that creatively tell the entire stories of Newbery-winning books in ninety seconds or less. Making the film is a fun, creative and multi-faceted educational exercise. Kids cooperatively write, storyboard, produce, direct, costume, act, frame and edit their films.

Public librarians, school librarians, teachers, parents, and scout leaders are encouraged to work with their kids to make movies. The deadline to submit films for the 2015-2016 film festival is January 10, 2016. Inspiration, tips and tricks, and more information can be found on the 90-Second Newbery website at http://jameskennedy.com/90-second-newbery/. 

Mark your calendar for the second annual Minnesota screening of the best local entries on Saturday, February 27, 2016, from 3:00-4:30 pm at Hennepin County Library – Minneapolis Central. Co-hosts of the event will be James Kennedy (90-Second Newbery founder and middle grade author of The Order of Odd-Fish) and Kelly Barnhill (Minneapolis author of The Witch’s Boy).
