What We Do

We bring filmmaking programs to kids with serious illnesses to improve their morale, self-confidence, and sense of hope.

 

Filmmaking

BayKids empowers children with illnesses to express themselves through the power of filmmaking.

Mentoring

Volunteers from our network of film and tech industry companies like LucasFilmPixar, and Apple mentor and inspire our kids in creative workshops.

Sharing

We celebrate our kids’ courage and creativity with the greater community through film screenings, in Oscar-like film festivals, and online.

Why Filmmaking?

Through filmmaking children learn they are so much more than their illness. As they develop their stories, design props and sets, and become actors and directors, they gain a sense of purpose and optimism. They learn that their story matters.

And this helps them cope with their illness.
