What is an Auteur?


It’s the French word for “author” and we apply it to film because it pertains to filmmakers whose personal and artisitic influence on a moive is so significant that he/she is regarded as the “author” of the movie. Auteurs are filmmakers who come up with a concept, flesh out the story, write the script, raise capital, direct the film and sometimes even edit the film. They’re involved in every creative process from start to finish and they have a very unqiue style that audiences can recognize. Here are some notable auteur filmmakers:

Alfred Hitchcock
Stanley Kubrick
Quentin Tarantino
James Cameron
Woody Allen
Coen Brothers
Wes Anderson
David Lynch
Christopher Nolan
Paul Greengrass
