The Savoy Region Movement (French: Mouvement Région Savoie, Arpitan: Movement Règion Savouè) is a French regionalist political party based in Savoy.[1]

The party supports the creation of a Savoyard region composed of the departments of Savoie and Haute-Savoie. Both of these departments are part of the larger Rhône-Alpes region, an 'artificial' region built in 1972. It also supports Arpitan (or Franco-Provençal), the older language of this region.

The party is a member of the Fédération Régions et Peuples Solidaires and the European Free Alliance, and it has had only one of its members elected to the regional council since 1992.
