It was great to see 500+ people in attendance at the #FilmItNorcal Rally on June 14th at the Fairmount Hotel. With a full host of actors, producers, directors, elected officials, celebrities, media from all parts of California, it was clear that the filmmaking community of San Francisco (and California) wants to support the improved tax rebate program to keep our jobs HERE. BAYCAT is proud to create the pathway from education to employment especially through our TechSF Internship Pathways Program so our young people from make their dreams to work for HBO, Showtime and Netflix a reality. Even more so, it’s about creating new films by them for the world that we hope to continue to nurture. They are the present (I’m too old to wait for the future) of filmmaking here in San Francisco!
Who We Are
Bayview-Hunters Point Center for Arts and Technology (BAYCAT) is a nonprofit social enterprise that educates, empowers and employs young people from historically underserved Bay Area communities in the digital media arts including: video production, music production, animation, graphic and web design.
We believe in running a nonprofit like a business, and in changing the philanthropy model. That’s why we created the “clonor” model, where clients become donors, and donors become clients.
