Project Nim is a 2011 British documentary film. It focuses on Project Nim, a research project that was mounted in the 1970s to determine whether a primate raised in close contact with humans could develop a limited "language" based on American Sign Language.

The film was first publicly shown during the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and then released for public exhibition on 8 July 2011.
