Penny Woolcock (born 1 January 1950, in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a British filmmaker, opera director, and screenwriter. She was raised in a British community in Montevideo, speaking English and going to English schools.

In 1967, she founded a radical theatre group and was briefly arrested; her parents wanted to send her to Europe for safety. Instead, she fled to Spain with a man from the theatre group and had a baby in Barcelona.

In 1970 she moved to England as a single mother. She did factory work and other jobs. In her thirties she enrolled in a filmmakers' workshop, borrowed film-making equipment, and sold the resulting feature to BBC Channel 4. She was then hired as a director and editor of a current affairs program originating in Newcastle. From there, she went on to feature making.
Her first feature as a writer and director was Women in Tropical Places in 1989. Since then she has directed and/or written seven films. She adapted and directed Macbeth on the Estate in 1997.

Her breakthrough film was Tina Goes Shopping, which was a collaborative piece with the real residents of the Gipton estates in Leeds, which was part of what is now known as the Tina Trilogy. Current projects include a production of the John Adams opera Doctor Atomic which she directed for the Metropolitan Opera's 2008–2009 season. She had previously filmed Adams's The Death of Klinghoffer as a feature film. Her most recent film is 1 Day.

Woolcock's latest TV production is "Storyville: From the Sea to the Land Beyond - Britain's Coast on Film" which has been broadcast twice. History buffs and people-watchers will find this an evocative and very entertaining piece, based on archive movie footage from early cinematography to recent times, revealing much about how primitive life was for the working-class in the early 1900s, and yet how little changes in the way people behave.
