Barbara Rubin (1945-1980) was an American filmmaker and performance artist. She is best known for her landmark 1963 underground film, Christmas on Earth.

Rubin came into the film world in 1963, working with Jonas Mekas at the Film-makers Coop. She was a major networker in the 1960s linking such disparate figures as Warhol, Bob Dylan, Jack Smith, and Allen Ginsberg, who said of her: "Her genius was sympathizing with everybody's desire to get together in work with their fellow geniuses."
