On June 12, 2023 during the 2023 Tribeca Festival in partnership with Emmy® Award-winning writer, creator and actor Lena Waithe and her company Hillman Grad Productions, Indeed presents Rising Voices was held.

Rising Voices was created to uncover, invest in and share stories created by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) filmmakers across the US around the meaning of work and the idea that jobs have the power to change us all. Indeed, Ventureland, 271 Films and PRETTYBIRD filmmakers and program mentors Calmatic, Paul Hunter and Melina Matsoukas selected the 10 winning screenplays and supported the filmmakers throughout the program and productions.
