Grigori Mikhailovich Kozintsev (Kiev, March 22 1905 – Leningrad, now Saint Petersburg, May 11 1973) was a Soviet Russian film director.

He studied in the Imperial Academy of Arts and started making films in 1921. His silent features, including The Overcoat (1926) and New Babylon (1929), had a ring of Expressionism, while the early sound film Odna (1931) used experimental montage sound techniques. Kozintsev is most renowned by his adaptations of William Shakespeare (King Lear and Hamlet) and Miguel de Cervantes (Don Quixote).
