Directors Guild of America Visual History Program

DGA logo

The mission of the DGA Visual History Program is to provide DGA members, entertainment industry professionals, educators, students and researchers the opportunity to explore the art and craft of film and television production through the career recollections and reflections of directors and director’s team members, including assistant directors, unit production managers, associate directors and stage managers. By means of in-depth interviews, the collection also offers historical documentation of the evolution of the craft, as well as the history and contributions of the Directors Guild as a social institution for peer interaction, support, and representation of its members’ creative concerns.

Visitors to the Visual History Program may browse the Collection for video highlights of the interviews, as well as biographical information and credits for the interview subjects and their interviewers. Users may also view complete interviews and search them by terms and topics.

Access to interviews is also provided by means of DVD reference copies available for viewing on-site at DGA offices in Los Angeles and New York.
