Chicken & Egg Pictures, which was founded in 2005 by Judith Helfand, Julie Parker Benello, and Wendy Ettinger to support women documentarians, is the recipient of this year’s IDA Amicus Award, which goes to an individual or organization that has been a great supporter, financially or otherwise, of documentary filmmaking. Documentary spoke with Wolfson via email about how she came to Chicken & Egg, the future of the organization, and how Chicken & Egg has impacted the film industry.
