As Chicken & Egg Pictures prepares for SXSW 2012, we are excited to share that four of our grantees are also bound for SXSW: Brooklyn Castle, Girl Model, Seeking Asian Female, and Woman: the Untold Story of American Superheroines! More details on the films below.
CHICKEN & EGG/SXSW EMERGENT WOMEN FILMMAKER NARRATIVE AWARD
Although Chicken & Egg Pictures has only supported a few narrative projects (most recently, Pariah ) we know that fiction films are critical ways to explore social, economic and environmental stories. Because we at Chicken & Egg Pictures recognize the importance of women filmmakers in all film genres we've created “The Emergent Woman Narrative Directing Award” in partnership with Janet Pierson and the SXSW Film Festival.
We are delighted to continue this tradition with SXSW. Check out the links below for find the films in contention for this year's "The Emergent Woman Narrative Directing Award."
