A Virtual Celebration: May 19, 2021

Chicken & Egg Pictures is thrilled to announce that our 15th (now 16th!) anniversary celebration, renamed Eggstended Re-Run, is going virtual! Originally planned as an in-person event held in New York City in 2020, we simply couldn’t wait any longer to honor the 340+ women and gender nonconforming filmmakers supported by the Nest. We are excited to open up the event (for free!) to supporters, filmmakers, industry allies, and other friends from all around the world.

In recognition of all the struggles we have endured this past year–both individually and collectively–we invite you to come together in community with us to celebrate and find joy at our virtual gathering. While this event is 100% free to attend, we hope you will consider making a donation here. Thanks to the generous underwriting of the event’s expenses, all funds raised go directly to Chicken & Egg Pictures programs, supporting gender parity in documentary and artful storytelling that catalyzes social change. 

Eggstended Re-Run will be closed captioned. If you would like to request ASL interpretation, or have other questions, reach out to us at eggstendedrun@chickeneggpics.org

5:00 PM PT / 8:00 PM ET

RSVP for free:


Julie Parker Benello,  Abigail E. Disney, Regina K. Scully, and Lekha Singh
