As both funders and filmmakers we know that a unique vision and voice is
essential for media to have an impact on society. Developing a unique vision
into a compelling story requires time and resources to take creative risks,
non-competitive feedback and a community of ideas and shared pursuits. These
factors limit the opportunities, access and ability for women filmmakers,
especially those with limited resources and contacts, to produce films that
reflect their diverse and unique experiences, visions and ideas; films that
engage the human heart, mind and spirit and further progressive change and
justice. With that uppermost in our mind, Chicken & Egg Pictures was
created to support tenacious and passionate women filmmakers, non-fiction
and fiction, emergent and veteran, who are committed to using their
story-telling skills and command of cinema to address the social justice,
equity and human rights issues of our times locally, nationally and
globally. Our primary objective is to provide these filmmakers with
strategic financial, creative and producing support at pivotal stages both
in the lives of their films and in their lives as artists.
