Jorge Fons Pérez (born in Tuxpan, Veracruz, Mexico on April 23, 1939) is a Mexican film director.
He belongs to the first generation of film directors of the UNAM. His short film, Caridad (1973), is still considered one of the best films in Mexican cinema. Two of the most important films of his filmography are Rojo amanecer (1989) and El callejón de los milagros (1995) based in the homonym book by Naguib Mahfouz, Midaq Alley of 1947 (زقق المدق), which breaks the classic lineal plots in films.
