DGA Visual History Program Highlighted at University Film & Video Association Conference

July 30, 2017

On July 30, educators and students got a taste of the DGA’s Visual History Program when it was on exhibition during the University Film and Video Association’s (UFVA) 71st Annual Conference held at California State University Los Angeles.

DGA Special Projects Committee Chair Jeremy Kagan promoted the Visual History Program as a free academic resource to professors, scholars and filmmakers. Kagan also demonstrated the Program’s database search functionality and spoke about other resources available to the public via the DGA website such as the DGA Quarterly and podcasts of Guild events. Members of the DGA staff were also on hand for one-on-one and small group demos of the site and its resources.

Founded in 1946, UFVA is an international organization of professors, scholars, and film and video makers dedicated to furthering and developing the instruction of motion picture and television media. The Guild previously participated in the UFVA’s annual conference in 2013.


Founded in 2000, the DGA’s Visual History Program has conducted more than 190 interviews with directors and director’s team members discussing their careers and creative processes in film, television and other media.
