José Bénazéraf (January 8, 1922 – December 1, 2012) was a French filmmaker and producer noted for his films labeled as "intello-érotique".

Bénazéraf was born in Casablanca, French Morocco. After completing his studies in political sciences, he started his career by producing Les lavandières du Portugal in 1958, a film of Pierre Gaspard-Huit. He started to direct erotic feature films in 1961 with L'éternité pour nous.

Two of his early sixties films, Le Concerto de la peur and La Nuit la plus longue featured a Chet Baker score.

At the end of the 1970s, he moved his attention to the direct-to-video market.

He died in Chiclana de la Frontera.
