Ivan Passer (born 10 July 1933) is a Czech-born film director and screenwriter.

A significant figure in the Czech New Wave of the mid-1960s, Passer worked closely with Miloš Forman on many of his films, and directed his first feature in 1965. Following the Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, Passer defected to the West, aided by Carlo Ponti and has been living and working in the United States since then.
