Chicken & Egg Pictures


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 $5.4 million in grants and thousands of hours of creative mentorship to over 260 filmmakers.

Involvement in film

We offer funding, creative mentorship and skills training. Our programs include the Accelerator Lab, the Breakthrough Filmmaker Award, the Diversity Fellows Initiative, Impact & Innovation and the Alumni 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.
