Kiss is a 1963 silent American experimental film directed by Andy Warhol, which runs 50 minutes and features various couples—man and woman, woman and woman, man and man—kissing for 3½ minutes each. The film features Naomi Levine, Gerard Malanga, Rufus Collins, Johnny Dodd, and Ed Sanders.

Kiss was followed by Eat (1963), Sleep (1963), and Blow Job (1964).

This was one of the first films Warhol made at The Factory in New York City. The film's historical significance lies in its aesthetic appeal of watching through close-up shots, in hard black-and-white contrasts and in different grains of "plot".

The film shows different close-up shots, all of which show the same subject – a kissing couple, both straight and gay, filmed at various times and eventually assembled into a larger ‘serial’ work. Furthermore, it is important that the length of each shot is 3.5 minutes, which was then the equivalent of one roll of film.
