The Directors Guild of Ukraine was founded on April 13th, 2020.
A film directors’ initiative group worked for about two years to set up an organization that can help protect professional interests and creative and economic rights of Ukrainian directors.
Finally, on February 2nd, 2020, a Constituent Assembly was held, and a decision to create a civic organization was made. The Head of the Directors Guild of Ukraine was elected Zhanna Maksymenko-Dovhych . For more information about the Guild, history of creation, founders, and the manifesto, see the website.
