Chicken & Egg Pictures' 2013 Open Call
Welcome to Chicken & Egg Pictures' 2013 Open Call!
Chicken & Egg Pictures is dedicated to supporting women nonfiction filmmakers whose diverse voices and dynamic storytelling have the power to catalyze change, at home and around the globe.
Over the last eight years, we have awarded over $2.8 million to filmmakers and have provided 4500 hours of creative "hands-with" mentorship. The average grant awarded this year will be between $10,000 - $15,000.
Chicken & Egg Pictures does not have an endowment. We actively raise all funds to provide grants and deliver mentorship directly to filmmakers. This year (for the first time ever) there will be a processing fee required to apply for a grant.
Every application is reviewed by a panel of at least 10 expert screeners who insure that every project is looked at thoroughly, fairly, and with multiple perspectives. We believe that it is critically important to have a rigorous review process.
To help offset hard costs given the high number of applications, a processing fee is necessary in order to maintain this caliber of expertise.
2013 Application Fees:
- First deadline on July 1st: $20
- Last deadline on July 15th: $35
We hope you will think of this fee as a chance to crowd source our collective belief in the power of women to catalyze the world, with voices raised, cameras poised, and stories told.
