The Directors and Editors Guild of New Zealand works to ensure the creative, cultural and financial well-being of New Zealand directors and editors.
We represent directors, editors and assistant editors of drama and documentary features; television drama, documentary and factual programmes; short films; commercials and promotions; animation; video art and online content.
We are an incorporated society and registered union with office headquarters in Auckland. We have regional representatives in Wellington and Christchurch, and host initiatives and events in most major centres around the country.
We are governed by a democratically-elected board chosen through annual elections from our membership.
