Pierre Creton (France, 1966) is a filmmaker and a farmer who lives and works in Vattetot-sur-Mer (Seine Maritime). He studied at Villa Arson, in Nice, and at the École des beaux-arts in Le Havre, after which he decided to move to Caux and concentrate on farming. To Creton, choosing a profession which is usually considered at the bottom of the social ladder represented his desire to take things as they come; and ever since 1992, when he also began to work as a director, it has also given him subjects for his stories. His movies have been presented at various festivals, including FIDMarseille, where in 2008 L’heure du berger won the Grand Prix in the French competition.
