Adriana Berroteran (b. Caracas, Venezuela) is a queer cinematographer currently based in Berlin.  Her creative interest lies in intersectionality and challenging the aesthetic parameters imposed by a society that lives in the framework of heteronormativity. She feels a deep attraction for the taboo, the forbidden, and the mystical aspects of existence, which she considers tools of liberation and self-knowledge. Currently, she’s exploring, developing, and honing skills in creating AI generative content leveraging AI tools to enhance storytelling within the film landscape.

She has studied film production at the Altos de Chavón School of Design in the Dominican Republic (2008); Direction of Photography and Colorimetry at the Training Center of the Argentine Film Industry Union CFP SICA (2009-2011); and was an invited participant in the Talent Campus Buenos Aires, a collaboration with Berlinale Talent (2011). Adriana stands as a figure in the esteemed D&AD Awards (UK), the most prestigious benchmark for creative excellence in design and advertising, where she lends her expertise as an integral part of the jury board, particularly within the categories of cinematography and music videos.

Committed to amplifying marginalized voices, Adriana works closely with international collectives like The ICF+C, Apertura DOP, Free The Work, FLINTA Filmmakers Berlin and Sporas. Presently, she serves as a mentor in the TLNT & TLNT e.V. program, a nonprofit German organization that connects young individuals with family immigration backgrounds to mentors from the creative and tech industries.

Traveling extensively, she has filmed in countries such as Mexico, Germany, Czech Republic, Argentina, Uruguay, Austria, and the USA, contributing to TV series, short films, commercials, music videos, music festivals, brand content, and documentaries. One of her most notable achievements as a Director of Photography is her role as a camera operator for TV shows produced in Mexico, prominently featured on Netflix and HBO Max. Additionally, her work has found recognition in esteemed film festivals across the United States and Europe.
