BayKids Studios heals children through the art of filmmaking. The innovative educational, artistic and therapeutic filmmaking programs help children and families at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland and beyond. Children with chronic illnesses are given this wonderful outlet through film to channel their hopes, fears and everything else they are experiencing. By expressing themselves, children work with BayKids filmmakers and visiting artists one on one and in groups to tap into their imagination, elevate their creative voices, and improve their lives. BayKids Studios has helped over 5,000 children and their families get through cancer and other medical conditions.
