A film director oversees the aesthetic and dramatic elements of a film, as well as the visualisation of the screenplay (or script), while directing the film crew and performers in the realisation of that vision. The director is responsible for the selection of the cast and crew, as well as the production design and any other elements of filmmaking that are considered creative. In accordance with European Union legislation, the director is regarded as the film's creator.

The film director directs the actors and crew and develops an overall vision for the picture, which is ultimately realised or recognised by the public. Directors must be able to manage conflicts between creative ideas while staying under financial constraints.

There are many routes that one may take to become a film director. Some film directors began their careers as screenwriters, cinematographers, producers, film editors, or actors before moving on to become directors. Other film directors have received their training in a film school. Directors use a variety of methods. Some directors create a basic storyline and then let the performers to improvise dialogue, while others have complete control over the production and insist that the actors and staff adhere to certain guidelines. Some directors also create their own scripts or work on screenplays with long-term writing partners. Some directors edit or act in their films, while others create the music soundtrack for their films.
