The Directors Guild of America has released the schedule of important dates for next year's 67th Annual DGA Awards, set to be handed out in Los Angeles on February 7, 2015.

Voting for nominees will take place between December 3 and January 12 for feature films and between December 15 and January 12 for television categories.  Nominees for feature film awards will be made public January 13, with television, commercial and documentary nominees announced the following day, January 14.  Final voting for the feature film award will take place between January 13 and February 6.

Like last year, all DGA Awards voting will take place online.  Screeners will be available for feature film projects only.

In a small but potentially significant rule change, directors of scripted television episodes will only be allowed to submit in the specific category for which they were hired.  For example, if a project's DGA agreement designates it a mini-series, the director must submit his or her episode in the Movies for Television or Mini-Series category, and will not be able to submit it for consideration in the Dramatic Series category.

DGA President Paris Barclay will chair the 67th DGA Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on February 7.
