Our Mission

Chicken & Egg Pictures is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a global community of women and gender expansive documentary filmmakers with creative and financial support to realize their cinematic visions and build fulfilling careers in a gender inclusive media industry.

Our Vision

We envision an equitable and just world shaped by the power of documentary films.

Our Values

  • Community: We nurture deep relational connections to grow to our fullest collective potential. We collaborate with our community of filmmakers, staff, Board, donors, partners and peer organizations to create lasting change.

  • ​Courage: We strive for strong ethical and moral courage in all decisions, actions and conversations we hold.

  • Curiosity & Creativity: We support filmmakers who push the possibilities of nonfiction cinema through their authentic visions. We reflect deeply on our world and ourselves with new perspectives and approaches, while remaining aligned to our purpose.

  • Equity & Justice: In an industry where access to resources has been systematically restricted and documentary filmmaking historically undervalued, our internal and external practices create an affirming and inclusive space for our artistic community.

  • Integrity: We hold ourselves accountable to our commitments by examining the impact of our work. We use each opportunity as a learning experience to guide us toward a more equitable media industry.

Since our founding, Chicken & Egg Pictures has awarded over $12 million in grants and devoted thousands of hours of creative mentorship to over 500 filmmakers from around the world. Films supported by our work have been nationally and internationally recognized with the industry’s highest honors, including Academy Awards, Emmy Awards, and Peabody Awards. And they have raised visibility and driven social change on urgent issues. 

Since 2013, the organization has been led by Chief Executive Officer, Jenni Wolfson. Under her leadership, our budget has grown and our programs have expanded, and our stellar team has won honors including the Social Impact Media Awards, Vanguard Award, and the International Documentary Association’s Amicus Award; we were also a finalist for the Nonprofit Excellence Awards.
