Thomas John "Jack" Howells (July 1913 - 6 September 1990) was a Welsh film-maker, who is best remembered for his documentary Dylan Thomas, the only Welsh film to have won an Academy Award, for Documentary Short Subject in 1963.
Howells was born in Abertysswg near Rhymney and was a school teacher before switching to film-making. Although best known for his impressionistic and lyrical documentaries, he also wrote screenplays for feature films, including Front Page Story (1953) and 'Skid Kids (1953).
