The Screen Directors Guild of Ireland has announced the 14th Annual Directors’ Finders Series Showcase in association with the Directors Guild of America. This event affords Irish directors an exciting opportunity to present their film in the DGA Theatre on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.

The selected film will be presented to key American distributors, agents and press with a view to securing a U.S distribution deal. Equally as significant, the director also gets to spend a week attending DGA/SDGI specially arranged meetings with industry peers for mentoring and training opportunities. This opportunity affords the winning director a unique networking experience during their time in LA in order to enhance and develop their international directorial career.

Films must be Irish and directors must be a member of SDGI (new membership is available subject to approval). The completed feature-length film or drama must not have U.S distribution. There is no timeline stipulation and the decision will be made by an international panel of industry experts.

ENTRY DEADLINE: 7th September 2018
Screening Date: 26th October 2018
