Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 960: How do people get to see movies at the DGA?
For those of you who don't know what the DGA is, it's the Directors Guild of America; the union that represents Directors, ADs and other classifications that fall under their jurisdiction. The DGA happens to have one of the best theaters in town (no surprise), but to see a movie there, you must be in an organization that is screening a movie there, invited by a member of an organization that is screening a movie there, or attending a film festival there. It is not a regular theater where you can just show up and pay.
Another good reason to reach out and create relationships with people. Some of the organizations that screen movies there in addition to DGA are: The SAG Film Society, The Cinematographers Guild and The Editors Guild.
