BAICFF's mission is to present diverse, interesting and fun workshops and films by, for, and about children.
BAICFF is A Playdate for the Imagination™ - an annual film festival programmed especially for families. Through the festival, children gain visual exposure to varied cultures, traditions, lives and experiences. As they come to better understand the world, children grow into thoughtful and conscious adults.
In January 2009, The Renaissance School and Screen 360: Films for Children of the World produced the first Bay Area International Children's Film Festival in the San Francisco East Bay. The festival began as a creative community event to support educational programs that foster global understanding and cultural exchange. In particular, the festival contributed to The Renaissance School's biannual international travel program, which took 40+ elementary level students to the Yucatan for 10 days in the fall of 2009.
The Film Festival Committee is a passionate group of people committed to creating a compelling family event.
