When it comes to inspiring the culture in Hollywood Lena Waithe’s Hillman Grad and 271 are doing their part after announcing the new host of filmmakers hand-picked to take part in Season 4 of Indeed’s Rising Voices.
“We’re so excited to announce the next class of incredible Rising Voices filmmakers,” said Waithe, Hillman Grad Founder and Rishi Rajani, Hillman Grad CEO. “It’s been a tumultuous year in Hollywood, which makes supporting the next generation of underrepresented storytellers even more crucial. These brilliant artists are the future of our industry and we’re proud to be part of their journey.”
ICYMI Indeed’s Rising Voices boosts Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) filmmakers across the United States to amplify the conversation on their unique takes on the climate that impacts the workplace.
The season 4 filmmakers include Anndi Jinelle Liggett, Jean Liu, Kelly Yu, Kevin Luu & Kelly Luu, Manuel Del Valle, Mercedes Arturo, Omar Kamara, Robin D’Oench, Wesley Goodrich and Winter Dunn.
“Indeed’s mission is to help people get jobs,” Indeed CEO Chris Hyamas said in a statement. “Rising Voices is not just an opportunity to create jobs for the filmmakers, casts, and crews, but to imagine the future of work from voices that are often unheard. We are grateful to again give 10 talented filmmakers the opportunity to share what the future of work looks like through their lens.”
These filmmakers will showcase their talents with an opportunity to create short films about the future of work and will premiere their projects at the prestigious Tribeca Festival in New York City in June 2024.
