Workforce and Operations Manager

Anita Gay


Anita Gay works across several programs at BAVC Media, including Operations, Workforce, and Employee Engagement. She liaisons with the City and County of San Francisco on Tech Apprenticeship initiatives, and oversees facility operations at BAVC Media’s home in San Francisco, the Ninth Street Independent Film Center.

Prior to joining BAVC Media in 2017 Anita spent many years in the world of photographic arts and retail, working in sales, bookkeeping, and human resources. She spent some formative years living in Thailand and South Korea, which fed a lifelong desire for world travel.

In 2017 she co-founded the East Bay Photo Collective (EBPCO), which subsequently opened a photography gallery in Oakland’s Chinatown, and a community darkroom in Downtown Oakland. Anita has shown her photographs in galleries throughout the East Bay and San Francisco.

When not at work, Anita enjoys gardening, hiking, and watching Star Trek with her cat. She’s also a big fan of movies of all genres, especially silent films. Catch her at the next San Francisco Silent Film Festival!
