Dror Shaul, (born in 1971), is an Israeli film-maker.
He came to prominence with the release of his first film, the 50-minutes Mivtza Savta (Operation Grandma), a comedy with a focus on the kibbutz experience. It is considered a cult movie, especially amongst kibbutzniks. He returned to the kibbutz with his second full-length feature, Adama Meshuga'at (Sweet Mud), a drama following an unhappy childhood on a kibbutz. It won an Israeli Film Academy Best Picture Award and a Sundance Grand Jury Prize. Shaul has confirmed that both films are based on real-life events. In between he wrote and directed Sima Vaknin Machshefa (Sima Vaknin, the Witch).
