Tadao Sato (佐藤 忠男, Satō Tadao, born October 6, 1930 in Niigata, Niigata) is a Japanese film critic, theorist and historian. He has published more than a hundred books on film, and is one of Japan's foremost scholars and historians addressing film. He is recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on Japanese cinema specifically, although little of his work has been translated for publication abroad. He has also written books on Chinese, Korean, American and European films.

The international awareness of Sato's scholarship can be attributed to a collection of selected essays, Currents In Japanese Cinema, published internationally in English translation in 1982. His Kenji Mizoguchi and the Art of Japanese Cinema was published in Japanese in 1982 and translated in 2008. Sato has also frequently appeared as a primary source in the writing of other Japanese film historians, notably Donald Richie and Joan Mellen.
