What is film auteur theory?

Generally a writer/director, an auteur film director puts a personal stamp on everything he or she creates. Think Quentin Tarantino, Alfred Hitchcock, Martin Scorsese, Wes Anderson, Howard Hawks, Jon Ford, Terry Gilliam, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay, Kathryn Bigelow.


They all may not have attended film school, but their style and storytelling ability places them among the rank of auteur directors.

Check out the definition below:

noun, plural au·teurs [oh-turz; French oh-tœr] /oʊˈtɜrz; French oʊˈtœr/.
a filmmaker whose individual style and complete control over all elements of production give a film its personal and unique stamp (Dictionary.com).
