Chicken & Egg Pictures supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. We envision a world in which women filmmakers, representing a range of experiences and backgrounds, are fully supported to realize their artistic goals, build sustainable careers, and achieve parity in all areas of the film industry. Since 2005, Chicken & Egg Pictures has awarded $6.2 million in grants and thousands of hours of creative mentorship to 285 filmmakers. Films supported by Chicken & Egg Pictures have won numerous awards, including Academy and Emmy Awards, but more importantly, they have resulted in change for the issues they address.
In this year-long program, ten projects will receive a $35,000 in grant funding for the production of their feature-length film; monthly mentorship with members of Chicken & Egg Pictures’ senior creative team; three creative retreats focused on career sustainability and creative development (usually in New York State or California); industry meetings and funder connections; and peer support from the Accelerator Lab cohort.
