Jeanine Basinger (born 3 February 1936), a film historian, is Corwin-Fuller Professor of Film Studies and Founder and Curator of The Cinema Archives at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut. Scholars from around the world have full access to the The Cinema Archives, which document the film industry in the twentieth century and contain the papers and film related materials of Frank Capra, Ingrid Bergman, Elia Kazan, Gene Tierney, Martin Scorsese, Federico Fellini, Clint Eastwood, and many others.

She is also a Trustee of the American Film Institute (which awarded her an honorary degree, a Doctorate of Humane Letters, on June 7, 2006), a member of the Steering Committee of the National Center for Film and Video Preservation, and one of the Board of Advisors for the Association of Independent Video and Filmmakers. She has appeared in numerous documentaries, and also in a dramatic role in A Better Way to Die (2000).

Basinger is credited with having built Wesleyan's Film Studies program into one of the top film schools in the country. A disproportionate number of notable Hollywood figures are graduates of the program. Former graduates include, but are not limited to: Akiva Goldsman, Joss Whedon, Michael Bay, Paul Weitz, Laurence Mark, Paul Schiff, Alex Kurtzman, Bruce Eric Kaplan, Toby Emmerich, Nicholas Meyer, Marc Shmuger, Rick Nicita, Brad Fuller, Dana Delany, Stephen Schiff, Rodger Grossman, Toni Ross, Bradley Whitford, Domenica Cameron-Scorsese, Liz Garcia, Marc Longenecker, Jon Turteltaub, Owen Renfroe, Jeffrey Lane, Zak Penn, Jeremy Arnold and Miguel Arteta.

In 2006 she participated in Wanderlust, a documentary film on road movies and their effect on American culture.
