Adriana Berroterán is a cinematographer originally hailing from Venezuela and currently based in Berlin. She began her career in the audiovisual world in 2007 and she’s an active member of The ICF+C, Apertura DOP, Free The Work and Sporas.

Since 2021 Adriana is part of the jury board (music video and cinematography categories) of the D&AD Awards, the most prestigious benchmark for creative excellence in design and advertising.

Her portfolio combines beautifully crafted shots full of poetry and mystery. She feels a deep attraction for the taboo, the forbidden, the mystical and the human body, which she considers tools of liberation and self-knowledge. Her creative interest lies in intersectionality and challenging the aesthetic parameters imposed by a society that lives in the framework of heteronormativity.

Adriana’s experience comes from TV series, short films, commercials, music videos, live music festivals and documentaries in several countries such as Mexico, Germany, Austria, USA and Argentina. Some of her most notable work includes being Camera Operator for TV shows for Netflix and HBO Max, projects developed in Mexico. In 2008 she completed a film production course in Altos de Chavón School of Design in Dominican Republic. From 2009 to 2011, she studied Direction of Photography and colorimetry at the Training Center of the Argentine Film Industry Union CFP SICA. In March 2011 she was selected to participate in the Talent Campus Buenos Aires in collaboration with The Berlin Film Festival - Berlinale Talent Campus. Adriana won the Best Cinematography Award for the Short Film ‘Hysteria’ at Sappho Film Festival UK 2021 and the Best Music Video for ‘3 & Hoy’ at Buenos Aires International Fashion Film Fest 2021. Additionally, some of her projects are official selection of several Film Festivals in the US and across Europe.
