Agnès Varda (born May 30, 1928) is a French film director. Her movies, photographs, and art installations focus on documentary realism, feminist issues, and social commentary — with a distinct experimental style.

Varda was born in Brussels, Belgium, to a Greek father and French mother. Her father's family were Greek refugees from Asia Minor. For her first film La Pointe courte (editing by Alain Resnais), she drew her inspiration from the region of Sète, where she grew up. Varda traveled from France to San Francisco and shot a quasi-surreal documentary film on her father's cousin, Jean Varda, titled Uncle Yanko.

For the 1985 documentary-style feature film Vagabond/Without Roof or Rule she received the Golden Lion of the Venice Film Festival.
