Staff
Youth Programs Intern

Nanami Yokota is a Program Assistant Intern at BAVC. She is currently focusing on youth programs and is a mentor for Reel Stories' Student Board, a program where 8+ students create a film in 8 months. With her work at the Student Board, Nanami hopes to empower women and nonbinary filmmakers to enter and thrive in the film industry. When she is not working on the Student Board, Nanami is usually working on community outreach or supporting other BAVC projects.

Nanami Yokota is an international student studying film. She was born in Japan, moved to the Philippines when she was eight, and is in her 3rd year at San Francisco's California College of the Arts. During her time at CCA, she's become interested in production management. Ideally, she would love to be a project manager for animated films, which she feels have served as a way for her to keep in touch with her Japanese heritage and culture and plans to dive deeper into the influence of Asian American culture through animation.
