Chicken and Egg Pictures

Chicken and Egg Pictures, the nonprofit film fund dedicated to incubating socially conscious documentaries from female filmmakers, has partnered up with the Indian Documentary Foundation to launch a new financial resource for women documentarians from India.

The IDF-Chicken and Egg Fund, which will support two female filmmakers with grants valued at $10,000, will accept applications as of September 2014. The grants will likely comprise a combination of cash and in-kind services like editing, post production and sound mixing.

Applications will be received from both emerging and established filmmakers, and a variety of types of projects will be considered, such as hybrid and transmedia storytelling. All documentaries under review should touch on social, environmental, or political themes.
