Message from the President

The Directors’ Guild of Nigeria, boasts of a unique founding history, six men sat together despite extraneous circumstances in 1999 unhappy with the unprofessional treatment of Directors in the emerging Nollywood. Practices including Copy Right Infringements, poor remuneration, inadequate welfare, and poor crediting vexed these men who came to be known as The Six Angry Men, they came to a resolution, and DGN was born. DGN recognizes this date as the true founding date of the Guild. 2019 is the year of The 20th Anniversary of DGN
