Chicken & Egg
Chicken & Egg Pictures supports women non-fiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change.
On March 9, we are co-hosting and moderating a free evening with BRIC at BRIC Arts | Media House. We’ll be screening excerpts from Speed Sisters, Born to Fly, and Canary in a Coal Mine, and discussing them with the filmmakers behind each film. Admission is free and first-come, first-served. RSVP here.
We are pleased and proud to announce the recipients of our inaugural Breakthrough Filmmaker Awards. The five chosen filmmakers are Kristi Jacobson (A Place at the Table) Julia Reichert (The Last Truck), Yoruba Richen (The New Black), Elaine McMillion Sheldon (Hollow), and Michèle Stephenson (American Promise). This award consists of a $50,000 unrestricted grant and a year-long mentorship program tailored to each filmmaker’s individual goals.
Chicken & Egg Pictures announced today they are supporting two additional projects focusing on criminal justice in the United States, joining a cohort of films currently supported by the organization that address the issue. 6X9: An Immersive Experience of Solitary Confinement, the organization’s first virtual reality project, and College Behind Bars both received grants.
