Auteur Films

Independent feature film auteurs are filmmakers who create independent films that can be categorized and recognized by their individual film-making styles.

The French theorists came up with classifying some directors as “auteurs” or authors based on their recognizable signatures upon their body of work. A director that could preserve his style, vision and imprint was considered an auteur filmmaker.

Digital filmmaking allows many more directors to create auteur independent feature films because the financial risks are a lot less then studio films as they imprint personal style and taste over commercial restraints. Some of the contemporary auteurs are David Lynch, Spike Lee, Martin Scorcese and Quentin Tarantino.
