The Good Fight

Over the past 30 years, Guild diversity committees have advanced the cause of women and minority members.

30 Years of Special Projects

For more than 30 years, the Special Projects Committee has been providing Guild members with unique opportunities to get to know individual directors and their work, and to learn more about the craft.

Support for Indie Films

The DGA established the Western Independent Directors Committee in 1998 and the Eastern Independent Directors Committee in 2002 to continue to address the needs of Guild members who work in the independent arena.
