The Bay Area International Children's Film Festival to Feature a 'Pixar Story Artist Showcase' & Behind-the-Scenes Look at 'Sanjay's Super Team'

The Bay Area International Children's Film Festival (BAICFF) will return for its 8th consecutive year January 29-31, 2016. Founded in 2009 by Shelley Trott and Pixarian, Jim Capobianco, the festival features numerous short film and feature film screenings, Q&A sessions from leading artists in the industry and workshops designed to introduce kids to the world of animation and live-action filmmaking. Kicking off the event (January 29) will be the "Pixar Story Artist Showcase: A Conversation Amongst Peers". Guests will be treated to a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the story making process at Pixar Animation Studios with a panel discussion lead by Jim Capobianco (Ratatouille), Enrico Casarosa (La Luna), Valerie LaPointe (Inside Out), Nate Stanton (WALL•E and Cars 2) and Alex Woo (The Incredibles) — that's quite an amazing lineup!

An additional Pixar presentation will take place titled, 'How Did They Do That?' a discussion with director Sanjay Patel and producer Nicole Grindle from the Academy Award nominated short, Sanjay's Super Team. Given the emotional backstory of this film and the newly released For Your Consideration video, this will be a presentation that you won't want to miss. Below is a list of additional panels, workshops and screenings that will take place during the festival (location information after the panel details below).

Sanjay's Super Team 

An Evening With Acclaimed Bay Area Director, Carroll Ballard - BAICFF will present an evening with acclaimed Director Carroll Ballard. Ballard, who does very limited public engagements, will host a special screening of his classic and much beloved 1979 feature film The Black Stallion, preceded by his short film Rodeo. Screenings to be followed by a moderated Q&A with Mr. Ballard and BAICFF’s Jim Capobianco.

Figure 8: Movement & Music Series - To celebrate its 8th year, BAICFF will present the movable melody of the figure 8 with a new Movement and Music series appropriately called Figure 8! These two inseparable aspects of cinema and childhood will be explored and showcased with special performances, film screenings and events that ignite the imagination for a truly memorable kinetic experience. The series will include short films about music and dance, and will feature local filmmaker Irene Chagall's, Let’s Get the Rhythm, a feature length documentary about children's clapping games from NYC’s inner city playgrounds to remote corners of the world.

How Did They Do That? Series - SANJAY’S SUPER TEAM - Created by Pixar artist and acclaimed author/illustrator Sanjay Patel, Sanjay’s Super Team has shown to critical acclaim in front of Pixar’s recent release, The Good Dinosaur. Come and see how the short was made from Sanjay himself and his producer Nicole Grindle. MERMAIDS ON MARS - Last year at BAICFF’15, Director Jon Peters and Producers Kat Alioshin and Nancy Guettier presented a behind the scenes work-in-progress of Mermaids on Mars. Now come see the finished stop-motion animated musical film followed by a Q&A with filmmakers.

Films By Bay Area Kids - This year, BAICFF will present five films made by kids including, Guitar Man, Drool, Be a Little Boulder, Moose Emergency, and Persevere: The Story of Wilma Rudolph. Persevere was made by students at Jefferson Elementary School in Berkeley, and their teacher Lisa Rossi and some of the young filmmakers will be on hand for a Q&A following the film.

Puffin Rock 
Puffin Rock -BAICFF presents Cartoon Saloon’s critically acclaimed children’s show Puffin Rock. The Irish series from the studio that brought us Song of the Sea has never been shown in the United States. Narrated by Chris O’Dowd, Puffin Rock follows the adventures of a family of puffins who live on a beautiful Irish island.

Animation Workshops and Short Film Presentations - BAICFF workshops allow kids to work in small groups to create engaging short animated films. The entire festival audience has a chance to view the creative results each afternoon as the footage is edited into a humorous, collaborative short film with music and sound effects and projected on the big screen! The workshops this year include outdoor live-action pixilation, and the ever-popular stop-motion technique with found objects and our signature professional clay animation figures.

Local Youth Filmmakers Series featuring BAYCAT and Camp Reel Stories - BAYCAT: Through education, employment and entertainment in digital media, BAYCAT empowers underserved youth and young adults, helping them find their place in the world. Camp Reel Stories is a non-profit summer program designed to empower 13-18 year old women with the skills to create their own media, to view current media critically and thoughtfully, and to aspire to leadership in their field.

The festival will take place Friday evening at 7:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00am - 9:00pm & Sunday, from 10:00am - 5:00pm January 29-31, 2016 at the Chabot Space & Science Center, 10000 Skyline Drive, Oakland, CA. Tickets are available online and to view the full program of events, visit BAICFF.
