We are the Australian Directors Guild
The Australian Directors Guild (ADG) is a registered industry association representing the interests of film, television and digital media directors, documentary makers and animators throughout Australia.
We are a registered organisation under the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009, representing Australian Directors who are employees.
After a long campaign over many years by its members, the Guild was registered on the 4th of March 2015.
ADG works to promote excellence in screen direction, to encourage communication and collaboration between directors and others in the industry and to provide professional support for its members.
ADG is proud to represent the key creative elements of the Australian independent production sector, and maintains its high profile in a cultural and policy role by addressing issues affecting the industry from a broad perspective.
