DGA promotes Garmezy

Exec to government, international affairs post

The Directors Guild of America has promoted veteran exec Kathy Garmezy to the post of associate executive director for government and international affairs.

DGA national exec director Jay Roth announced the move Wednesday.

Kathy’s work on behalf of the DGA in the area of government and international affairs has been dedicated and tireless,” he said. “Her recent work on Internet theft has helped educate and focus the membership on these critical policy issues.”

Garmezy’s worked for the DGA for 13 years and is responsible for its federal, state and international legislative and governmental work. She’s worked on intellectual property, copyright and anti-piracy protections; federal and state incentives for runaway film and television production; and issues relating to the protection of DGA members’ creative and economic rights.

The DGA said current policy priorities include directing its efforts to fight digital theft and building coalitions internationally and within the entertainment industry.

Before joining the DGA, Garmezy served as exec director of the Artists Rights Foundation.
