Grants Available for Women Filmmakers and Directors

Women filmmakers and directors from Chicken & Egg Pictures

Chicken & Egg Pictures (CEP) supports women nonfiction filmmakers whose artful and innovative storytelling catalyzes social change. They envision an inclusive media industry in which women and gender non-conforming 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.

CEP supports filmmakers from diverse backgrounds who are both committed to social change and to the art and craft of filmmaking. When a project is chosen, it's because they believe the film needs to be made – and the filmmaker is the one to make it. Their grantees have unique access to their subjects, a collaborative spirit, and the courage to take creative risks.
