The Directors Guild of America is in the process of putting online
at http://www.dga.org its directory (which has been published annually for
years); its website also has links to individual directors' webpages.
Generally, the printed version of the directory gives the director's
agency as the contact, and occasionally (should he or she have one) a
production company. In the past, my students and I have been successful
in using these contacts to communicate personally with the director
(Savage Steve Holland and Jim Jarmusch [there's a pair!] most recently,
both through their production companies).
The Screen Actors Guild website (www.sag.com) has a member
directory, but it is accessible only by SAG members. AFTRA offers no
directory, but will give you the actor's agent by emailing [log in to unmask]

I have been in the scholastic profession long enough to know
that nobody enters it unless he has some very good reason
which he is anxious to conceal.
