Moshé Mizrahi (Hebrew: משה מזרחי; born 1931) is an Israeli film director.

He has directed 14 films in both Israel and France. Three of his films were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, I Love You Rosa,[1] The House on Chelouche Street[2] and Madame Rosa, with the last of these winning the award.[3]

In September 1994, he was honored by the Haifa Film Festival for his lifetime contribution to Israel cinema.

His landmark film, Les Stances à Sophie, went practically unseen until it was re-released in 2008 and its jazz soundtrack album of the same name (but lacking the accent) was profiled in The FADER by Alexander Geoffrey Frank.

As of March 2009, Mizrahi was living in Tel Aviv, leading film-making workshop in Tel Aviv University's film school. His wife, Michal Bat-Adam, is a film director as well as an actress, and played lead roles in several of Mizrahi's films. Today, she teaches acting classes at Tel Aviv University.
