Johan Jacobsen (14 March 1912 – 7 July 1972) was a Danish film director.

Jacobsen was born in Aarhus in 1912. His parents were theatre manager Jacob Jørgen Jacobsen (1865-1955) and actress Christel Holch (1886-1968). He made his first films at the film studio Palladium that also produced the films of Carl Theodor Dreyer. From 1951 onwards Jacobsen produced his own films and those of his wife Annelise Hovmand (1926-) outside the Danish 'studio system' at his independent film studio Flamingo. In 1959 he was a member of the jury at the 9th Berlin International Film Festival.[1] In his last years Jacobsen worked for tycoon Simon Spies (1921-1984) at his cinema Merkur Bio in Copenhagen.
