Naomi Kawase (河瀨直美 Kawase Naomi?, born May 30, 1969 in Nara, Japan) is a Japanese film director. She was also known as Naomi Sento ( 仙頭直美 Sentō Naomi?), with her then-husband's surname. Many of her works have been documentaries, including Embracing, about her search for the father who abandoned her as a child, and Katatsumori, about the grandmother who raised her.

After graduating in 1989 from the Osaka School of Photography (Ōsaka Shashin Senmon Gakkō) (now Visual Arts College Osaka), where she was a student of Shunji Dodo,[1][2] she spent an additional four years there as a lecturer before releasing Embracing. She became the youngest winner of the la Caméra d'Or award (best new director) at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival for her first 35mm film, Moe no Suzaku. She novelized her films Moe no Suzaku and Firefly.

Kawase has completed production on her fourth full-length film Mogari no Mori, which had its première in June, 2007 in her hometown Nara.

She won the Grand Prix at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival for Mogari no Mori.[3] Her latest film Hanezu premiered In Competition at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.[4][5]
