Peter Urban Bruun Gad (12 February 1879 – 26 December 1947) was a Danish film director, stage actor, screenwriter, and author. He directed 40 films between 1910 and 1927. His wife Asta Nielsen starred in 30 of his films, also in his début the film Afgrunden (The Abyss) from 1910. They moved to Germany in 1911 where Gad worked with Paul Davidson until 1922.

His mother was the playwright Emma Gad. In 1873, the painter Paul Gauguin married Emma's sister, Mette-Sophie Gad. Between 1912 and 1918, Gad was married to actress Asta Nielsen.
