The term auteur (French for author) is used to describe film directors (or, more rarely, producers) who are considered to have a distinctive, recognisable vision, either because they repeatedly return to the same subject matter, or use a recurring style, or both. In theory, an auteur's films are recognisable regardless of their genre. The word was first coined in François Truffaut's 1954 essay "A Certain Tendency of the French Cinema" (see Auteur theory).
