Rasoul Mollagholipour (Persian:رسول ملاقلی‌پور; also spelt Rasool Mollagholi Poor; 1955 – 6 March 2007) was an Iranian film director, screenwriter, and cinematographer.


He began his career as a photographer. He directed several short documentaries about the 1980–88 Iran–Iraq War. The film director won critical acclaim for the 16-mm "Neynava".[1]

His movie Mim Mesle Madar (M for Mother, 2006) was a huge success despite its sad and shocking scenes. He was selected to represent Iran in the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 2008 Oscars.

He also wrote film scripts and acted as a jury member in Fajr International Film Festival. Afternoon of the 10th Day was his last feature film.
