Juozas Miltinis (September 3, 1907 in Akmenė, Lithuania – July 13, 1994 in Panevėžys, Lithuania) was a Lithuanian theatre director and founder of the Panevėžys Drama Theatre. Miltinis has brought up a number of actors, including Donatas Banionis.

From 1932 on, he had studied in Paris, in the school of theatrical art conducted by Charles Dullin. After his return to Kaunas, Miltinis organized here his own theatrical studio and propagated the main tenets of his teachers, Charles Dullin and Jacques Copeau. The Panevėžys drama theatre was founded in 1940 and Miltinis was appointed as its chief art director. He retired from this position only in 1980. The main body of the young Panevėžys Theatre was made up from the pupils of this studio.
