A movie director controls the creative parts of movie making and how the movie looks and sounds.  This includes picking the actors, choosing where they film the movie, and how to film the movie.  A screenwriter writes the scripts or the words an actor says during the movie.  They also write down what happens in a movie such as what the setting looks like, what kind of special effects may appear, or what emotions the actors need to portray.  A movie producer manages the business side of making movies.  They manage the money needed and used in the film making process and work to keep the movie making process focused and on task.  They also work on distributing the movie to theaters and later to DVDs or online.
