Guy Ferland (born 18 February 1966) is an American film and television director.

After Alfred Hitchcock's 1946 film Notorious inspired him to become a filmmaker, Ferland went on to study cinema production at the University of Southern California's School of Cinema and Television, graduating in 1988,[1] and received an internship working as a researcher at Creative Artists Agency.[2] He landed a job as film director Joel Schumacher's assistant three days after receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree and in five years, until 1994, he worked with Schumacher on Cousins, Flatliners, If Looks Could Kill, Dying Young, Falling Down and The Client, receiving an associate producer credit in the last. He then moved on to write and direct his first own film, The Babysitter, in 1995 and in 1997 directed Telling Lies in America, which was commended for Excellence in Filmmaking by the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures. After directing and producing Delivered, he began to direct for television, starting with Our Guys: Outrage at Glen Ridge, an American Broadcasting Company made-for-television movie.[2] He also directed the award-winning television movies After the Storm and Bang, Bang, You're Dead in 2001 and 2002 respectively. After the Storm was named Best Feature Film at the 2000 New York International Independent Film and Video Festival and Ferland was individually commeded on the realism he brought to the film with underwater photography,[3] while he was awarded a Daytime Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Directing in a Children's Special[4] and a Directors Guild of America Award in the category of Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Children's Programs[5] for Bang, Bang, You're Dead in 2003.

After directing the 2004 sequel to the 1987 Dirty Dancing, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights,[6] Ferland proceeded to work primarily with television series, and has picked up credits directing for the series Ed, Medical Investigation, House, M.D., Blind Justice, Nip/Tuck, The Unit, Prison Break, Sleeper Cell, Raines, Traveler, Damages, Saving Grace, The Riches, Eleventh Hour, and most notably The Shield, for which he has directed thirteen episodes.
