Kiumars Pourahmad (Persian: کیومرث پوراحمد ‎) is an Iranian film director, screenwriter, film editor and film producer. He was born in 1949 in Nadjaf Abad, Iran.


Pourahmad started his career as a film critic and assistant director in a TV series in early 1970s. He made his directorial debut, Tatureh in 1983 after making some short films. Children and young adults with their problems are the central characters in most of his films.
