The Commercial Directors Diversity Program, or CDDP, is committed to increasing the number of minority and women directors in both the commercial directing ranks and DGA membership. The program was created through a partnership with the AICP (Association of Independent Commercial Producers) and the DGA.
The CDDP will achieve it’s goals by presenting showcases of unsigned directors to the AICP membership in the hopes of creating relationships which would lead participants to sign with a production company.
The first CDDP Showcase was held in Los Angeles on January 11th, 2017 at the DGA Theater. Future Showcases will be held in which any unsigned minority or women directors are invited to enter their work to be considered for inclusion.
