Chicken & Egg Pictures


Chicken & Egg Pictures supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. We envision an inclusive media industry in which women and gender nonconforming filmmakers, representing a range of experiences and backgrounds, are fully supported to realize their artistic goals, and build fulfilling careers in the documentary film industry.

Since 2005, Chicken & Egg Pictures has awarded $7 million in grants and thousands of hours of creative mentorship to over 300 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.

Involvement in film

We offer funding, creative mentorship and skills training. Our programs include the Eggcelerator Lab, the Chicken & Egg Filmmaker Award, Docs by the Dozen, Project Hatched and the Alumnest Resource and Support Network. These programs are designed to intensify our support of women storytellers by increasing the diversity of women in the film industry, expanding opportunities for career sustainability and supporting innovation and striving towards creating social change.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
