Chicken & Egg Pictures
Chicken & Egg Pictures is a hybrid film fund and non-profit production company dedicated to supporting women filmmakers who are as passionate about the craft of storytelling as they are about the social justice, environmental and human rights issues they’re embracing, translating and exploring on film. In addition to funding, Judith Helfand, Wendy Ettinger, Julie Parker Benello have offered mentorship and support.
Tribeca All Access (TAA)
TAA is a program of the TRIBECA FILM INSTITUTE, provides emerging and established filmmakers from traditionally underserved communities access to industry professionals, with workshops, panels, and one-on-one meetings.
