A Time Out of War is a 1954 American short war film directed by Denis Sanders. It won an Academy Award in 1955 for Best Short Subject (Two-Reel), first prize at the Venice Film Festival Live Action Short Film category, and a special BAFTA Award.

Denis Sanders was in UCLA film school whilst his brother was a UCLA undergraduate. For Denis's thesis, he searched for an American Civil War short story that was in the public domain to make a film out of. He chose Pickets, an 1897 story by Robert W. Chambers.

The prestige of the film led both brothers to be employed by Charles Laughton with their first works being second unit directors of the river scenes in The Night of the Hunter and writing a screenplay for The Naked and the Dead that they said was rewritten by others.

The Academy Film Archive preserved A Time Out of War in 2007.
