- To promote the economic and creative rights of the screen director and awareness of their work, role and status as artists.

Moving pictures move people — the screen is the medium of our age. Irish stories on the screen move our culture, and move us onto the world stage. It’s an industry of thousands, reaching out to millions. At its heart, are our members, the directors.
So we support them like our stories depend on it. With mentorships for learning, with panels for discussion. With events for networking, with awards for recognition, and with advocacy for rights. We support the creative, for great stories imagined. We support the bold — for great stories resourced. We support the directors — for great stories told.
