Nicole Holofcener (born March 22, 1960) is an American film and television director. She has directed four feature films, most recently Please Give.

Raised in New York City and Los Angeles, Holofcener grew up with her artist father Lawrence Holofcener, set decorator mother Carol, and stepfather, film producer Charles H. Joffe. After studying film at Columbia University, she made two shorts titled Angry and It's Richard I Love.

Holofcener made her feature film writing and directing debut with Walking and Talking, which starred Catherine Keener, Anne Heche, Todd Field, Liev Schreiber, and Kevin Corrigan. The film was critically acclaimed and has since gained a cult following. Her understanding of modern, professional women made her an ideal choice to direct female-centric television shows like Sex and the City, Leap of Faith and Gilmore Girls.
