Jacques de Baroncelli (25 June 1881 – 12 January 1951) was a French film director best known for his silent films from 1915 to the late 1930s. He came from a Florentine family who had settled in Provence in the 15th century, occupying a building in the centre of Avignon then called the Baroncelli Palace (now the Palais du Roure). His father's side of the family were of Tuscan origin and part of the Ghibelline tradition, and they were hereditary Marquises of Javon. Though somewhat aristocratic, the family spoke Provençal, which was rather controversial at a time when it was considered to be a language of the common people. His older brother was Folco de Baroncelli-Javon,

He directed well over 80 films between 1915 and 1948 and in the 1940s released numerous films in the United States and Italy. One of his films, a version of the Pierre Louÿs novel La Femme et le pantin (1928) was filmed in the experimental Keller-Dorian color process.
