I'm Adriana Berroterán, a queer cinematographer originally from the vibrant landscapes of Venezuela and currently finding inspiration amidst the eclectic energy of Berlin.

As a fervent advocate for inclusivity and diversity, I am proud to be an active member of esteemed collectives such as The ICF+C, Apertura DOP, Free The Work, FLINTA Filmmakers Berlin and Sporas. These platforms fuel my commitment to breaking down artistic boundaries and carving out space for underrepresented voices to shine.

Diving into the heart of my achievements, I'm honored to be a key figure in the esteemed D&AD Awards, where I contribute my expertise as part of the jury board for the music video and cinematography categories.

With an unwavering fascination for the enigmatic, the unconventional, and the human form itself, I view these elements as not only tools of liberation but also as conduits for profound self-discovery. My creative journey is a tapestry woven with threads of intersectionality, pushing against the constraints of conventional aesthetics that are rooted in a heteronormative society.

Exploring various corners of the world, I've made meaningful contributions to TV series, short films, commercials, music videos, livestream music festivals, brand content and documentaries. Some of my most notable work includes being Camera Operator for TV shows for Netflix and HBO Max. From the lively streets of Mexico to the artistic havens of Germany and Austria, and even projects shot in the Czech Republic, my journey has led me through diverse landscapes. 

My educational odyssey has been equally enriching. A transformative film production course at the Altos de Chavón School of Design in the Dominican Republic laid the foundation in 2008. From there, I delved into the intricate realms of Direction of Photography and colorimetry at the Training Center of the Argentine Film Industry Union CFP SICA, spanning from 2009 to 2011. A milestone emerged in March 2011 when I was selected for the Talent Campus Buenos Aires in collaboration with the Berlinale Talent Campus, a moment that ignited new dimensions of creativity and exploration.

Among acknowledgments, the Short Film 'Hysteria' secured the Best Cinematography Award at the Sappho Film Festival UK 2021. '3 & Hoy,' a music video, earned the Best Music Video accolade at the Buenos Aires International Fashion Film Fest 2021. Additionally, my work has found recognition in esteemed film festivals across the United States and Europe.
