On June 1 & 2, the Bay Area Youth Media Network (BAYMN) will present BAYMN FEST, a free two-day interactive showcase of media produced by young folks ages 12-24, hosted at the San Francisco Public Library. Through screenings, workshops, a transmedia gallery, a makerspace, parties and networking opportunities, BAYMN FEST will be a place for young artists to share their work, meet their peers, acquire new tools, make their voices heard–and win cool prizes and media-making tools! It is a unique opportunity for youth, educators and the general public to celebrate the work of talented young media makers. We hope you will join us and be inspired.
We received over 300 youth-produced videos through our call for entries in a variety of categories including Science, Technology, & Innovation; Arts & Expression; and Social Justice & Community Engagement; and we have put together an exciting series of shorts programs that will screen throughout the weekend.
This event is open to the public. For educators, we encourage you to schedule time for your students to come and participate… or if you are out of school for the summer, to organize a group of young folks to attend. This event will be a great opportunity for young folks to connect with their peers who are passionate about making media, and it will give you the chance as an educator to immerse yourself in the youth media movement, network with other educators and even acquire some new skills. This festival is funded by Adobe Youth Voices and The AT&T Foundation.

The MakerSpace at BAYMN FEST will be an interactive space for young people and their adult allies to create, invent and learn. Events in the space will include hands-on workshops from DIY, an Expert Fair for young filmmakers, and an Instagram / Vine Photo Booth, with a special contest to boot. Come and explore!
DIY is an online community where young people become makers. They discover new skills, make projects in the real world, and share their work online to inspire and learn from each other.
The BAYMN FEST Transmedia Gallery is a showcase of youth works that embrace new forms of storytelling while highlighting innovation across a variety of platforms. Stop in to see exciting works that continue beyond the screen into blogs, apps and even games.
