Since 2005, Chicken & Egg Pictures has awarded almost $4 million in grants and more than 5,200 hours of mentorship to over 180 films. We are interested in films that tackle human rights, social justice, and environmental issues in a nuanced, original, and compelling way. We look for new voices, powerful stories, and filmmakers who are committed to working in tandem with social movements.
Each grant recipent receives $35,000 to produce a documentary feature film. The films must be directed by women, including "self-identifying women (cis or trans), gender nonconforming individuals, and female/male co-directing partnerships."
