Australian Directors' Guild   

Donations and Bequests

  • Support the ADG 

    The Australian Directors' Guild is the organisation dedicated to supporting and celebrating Australian screen directors. As we embark on our ambitious plan for 2024-2026, we need your support to achieve our goals.

    The ADG receives no ongoing core funding and cash-flow is extremely tight. We rely on approximately 1/3 membership fees, 1/3 events & sponsorships and 1/3 grants & partnerships. We value every dollar, but our current funding model leaves us very under-resourced.

    Redress the Balance

    • Directors, Writers and Producers are the key players, leading and authoring Australian screen stories. But unfortunately, ADG finances and resources are tiny compared to the organisations supporting writers and producers. 
    • For the Australian screen industry to thrive, the ADG must be able to stand shoulder to shoulder with Screen Producers Australia (SPA) and the Australian Writers' Guild (AWG).
    •  Supporting the ADG through donations, sponsorships, and partnerships will empower directors and our industry to create great Australian screen stories.
