NALIP believes that a Producer is the creative originator of films, a self-starter who recognizes ideas that have artistic or commercial merit. Producers must have passion, sensitivity for story and audience, plus the organizational ability and practical smarts to put together a project, then guide it to and through the marketplace. NALIP’s Latino Producers Academy™ provides our Fellows with the practical skills and knowledge to accomplish their personal goals and realize their artistic dreams as filmmakers.

• Documentary producers/directors with projects in development or production who have proposals and sample tapes; they are invited with their producer/director partners .

During his extraordinary life, Cruz Reynoso, the son of farm workers who became the first Latino to be appointed to the California Supreme Court, has been one of those rare individuals who are not only shaped by history-they make history. Sowing the Seeds of Justice paints a portrait of Cruz Reynoso, a man who felt the sting of injustice as a child and later, as a lawyer, judge and teacher, fought for over five decades to eradicate discrimination and inequality for all.
