The DGC Master Class Series 2016 is presented by the DGC in partnership with VIFF Industry. 

The Guild held the inaugural session of the series in Vancouver on May 28,  featuring guest Director Adam Arkin. 

Hosted by DGC Director Simon Barry in front of a capacity crowd, Adam took us to the hostile landscapes of “Minnesota” and shared prep to post highlights of two very opposing scenes from Fargo Season 2.











 Adam has mastered the segue between acting and directing and is now one of the most prolific directors of critically acclaimed, cutting-edge episodic TV dramas including FargoMasters of Sex,  JustifiedBackstromSons of Anarchy, The Americans and Secrets and Lies to name but a few.
