In partnership with Pivot, Students of the World designed and launched the Emerging Voices Production Program to support aspiring filmmakers from diverse backgrounds.

Our inaugural grantee Nelson Navarrete, received a production grant, mentorship from award-winning filmmaker Richard Ray Perez, and national distribution on pivot. His film “Harvesting Hope,” highlights the story of a 16 year old farmworker who dreams of inspiring his community through art. The film, along with behind the scenes content and a filmmaker vignette aired on pivot in conjunction with Perez’s Cesar’s Last Fast.
