Wolf Gremm is a German film director and screenwriter.

In the 1960s he studied German literature, psychology, sociology and theater. After graduation he studied film direction at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin and directed his first feature film Ich dachte, ich wär tot in 1973. During the 1970s and early 1980s he produced several feature films. His greatest success was the 1980 film Fabian based on a novel by German author Erich Kästner.

This film was also his last feature film as since then he has worked solely for television. Gremm is married to the film producer Regina Ziegler, who began her career as the producer of Gremmäs first feature film Ich dachte, ich wär tot.
