Jacques Doniol-Valcroze (15 March 1920 – 6 October 1989) was a French actor, critic, screenwriter, and director.
In 1955, he was a member of the jury at the 16th Venice International Film Festival, and in 1964 a member of the jury at the 14th Berlin International Film Festival.
In his thirties he played a role in the French New Wave and discussed the beginnings of "the new cinema." He was also a co-founder of Cahiers du cinéma and defended Alain Robbe-Grillet. His own works in this area include directing the film L'Eau à la bouche (fr) and acting in some New Wave films. Nevertheless he is generally excluded from the movement's "inner circle." Additionally he was friends with François Truffaut who shot the film Une Visite in his flat. He was married to Françoise Brion.
