Chicken & Egg Pictures’ 2014 Open Call grant process will open June 1. The company has designed the grant to support women non-fiction filmmakers whose “diverse voices and dynamic storytelling have the power to catalyze change, at home and around the globe. [They are] looking for filmmakers with powerful stories, unique access to their subjects, a collaborative spirit, and the courage to take creative risks.”
Sound like you? The early-bird application deadline is Tuesday, June 17, and the final deadline is Tuesday, July 1, 2014.
Here’s a special focus for the 2014 applications: In anticipation of Chicken & Egg Pictures' upcoming 10th anniversary, they will be prioritizing projects featuring women and girls on screen as prominent characters and storytellers. And issues of global justice, human rights, and the environment -- with women and girls at the center -- are ideal.
More details, along with guidelines and a practice application, are available on their website. The official online application goes live June 1.
