Mission Statement

The Bay Area International Children's Film Festival's mission is to present culturally diverse, value affirming cinema by, for and about children.

BAICFF is A Playdate for the Imagination™ - an annual film festival programmed especially for families. BAICFF creates an opportunity for children to experience diverse communities through cinema. BAICFF believes exposure to global culture promotes tolerance and understanding, and enables children to grow into engaged, thoughtful adults.


The Bay Area International Children's Film Festival (BAICFF) is the only children's film festival in the San Francisco East Bay and serves a diverse group of parents and children. BAICFF offers high-qualiy films from around the world, engaging creative filmmaking workshops for kids, and a selection of healthy food from international vendors. BAICFF is uniquely programmed as a destination event. Families often stay for an entire day and many purchase a "weekend pass" to take advantage of the full range of festival activities. Our 5th annual festival is a great opportunity for volunteers to participate in a landmark multi-cultural, family event. In just 4 years, over 3000 people have attended BAICFF, 145 films from 6 continents have been presented, and 140 kids have participated in workshops creating flip books, zoetropes, and short animated and documentary films.
