Denis Villeneuve (born October 3, 1967 in Bécancour) is a Canadian director and screenwriter from Quebec.

A multiple awards winner, he is best known for his crime-thrillers Prisoners and Sicario, and his science fiction film Arrival, which received 8 Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

His films have very deliberate pacing used to build tension and unease within the audience. He is also known for his use of stunning Scenery Porn and light and dark to great effect so that every shot is beautifully framed.

He took on very ambitious directorial challenges since the late 2010s, with the sequel to Blade Runner and a new adaptation of Dune. He's also been announced to showrun Dune: The Sisterhood, a live action Spin-Off series set in his film's universe for HBO Max.
