A Sunday in Kigali (original French title: Un dimanche à Kigali) is a 2006 Canadian feature film set during the Rwandan genocide.

Directed by Robert Favreau, it relates the story of Bernard Valcourt, a documentary film maker and journalist who falls in love with a young Rwandan woman, Gentille, who works at the Hôtel Des Mille Collines. The brutal violence of the Rwandan genocide separates them; a few months later, Bernard returns to Rwanda seeking Gentille. Most of the narrative unfolds in retrospect.

The film is based on the novel A Sunday at the pool in Kigali, by Gil Courtemanche.
