Katja von Garnier (born 15 December 1966 in Wiesbaden) is a German film director.

From 1989-1994, she studied at the University of Television and Film Munich. Her 1993 practice film Abgeschminkt! was shown in theatres all over Germany and attracted 1.2 million visitors. The project had been rejected by several producers that had not believed that a one-hour film could become a commercial success.

The 1997 film Bandits starring Katja Riemann was also a commercial success.

In 2002, she directed in the United States for the first time. The resulting movie Iron Jawed Angels about the women's suffrage movement was produced by HBO Films and released in 2004.

Together with her husband, director Markus Goller, and their son Merlin, Katja von Garnier lives in Los Angeles.
