Charles H. Joffe (July 16, 1929 – July 9, 2008) was an American film producer and comedy talent manager.[1] He is most well known as being, in partnership with Jack Rollins, the producer or executive producer of the majority of the films directed by Woody Allen. Joffe won the 1977 Academy Award for Best Picture as producer of Allen's Annie Hall.

Annie Hall was listed as "A Jack Rollins and Charles H. Joffe Production", though only Joffe took producer credit and received the Academy Award for Best Picture. Both were Allen's long standing managers and had that credit on all his films from 1969 to 1993. Joffe focused more on Allen, with Rollins focusing on others.[1] Their management clients also included Robert Klein and David Letterman.[2]

Joffe was married to set decorator Carol Joffe[3] and was the stepfather of director Nicole Holofcener. He died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, a week before his 79th birthday, after a long illness.[1]
