On February 21, 2016, Portland Community Media will host a kids’ film festival, the 90-Second Newbery. Kid filmmakers are invited to create and submit 90-second film adaptations of Newbery Award-winning books. Workshops are available to help prepare a submission.

Upcoming Classes for Youth at Portland Community Media:

Jan. 6–20: In the Newbery in 90 Seconds workshop, youth 8 to 12 can craft submissions for the Newbery in 90 Seconds film festival that PCM is hosting in February. With a team of fellow kid filmmakers, make your own short adaptation of a Newbery Award-winning book.

Jan. 19–Feb. 2: In the 3-session Field Production class, youth learn how to use PCM’s field equipment, so they’re certified to check it out for use in productions outside our studios.

Feb. 3–17: In Adventures in Editing, youth can learn how to use Final Cut Pro—and how to incorporate green screens into their productions.

March 21–25: In the intensive daily Spring Break camp, So You Think You Want to Be a Filmmaker, youth will learn the magic of film production, creating film shorts from script to screen!


Youth who are interested in entering the Newbery Film Festival should take a PCM workshop now so that they have the tools they need to craft their submissions!
