Wilfred Buckland (April 18, 1866 – July 18, 1946) was an American art director. Buckland worked as an art director with Cecil B. DeMille and Jesse Lasky, and later with Alan Dwan, from 1914-1927. He was Hollywood's first "art director" and is credited with a number of advancements in filmmaking, including the advances in lighting techniques, the development of architectural sets, and the use of miniature sets. In 1924, he was named one of the ten individuals who had contributed the most to the advancement of the motion picture industry since the time of its inception. A 1980 exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum advanced the argument that "everything we know as 'Hollywood' traces to Wilfred Buckland." Buckland was among the first inductees in the Art Directors Guild Hall of Fame.

1Buckland was a leading designer from the New York stage (primarily for David Belasco), who became the first genuine art director in Hollywood. After working on The Squaw Man (1914), he became a regular collaborator of Cecil B. DeMille and cameraman Alvin Wyckoff. Under contract to Jesse Lasky (1914-20) at Famous Players, he pioneered artificial lighting and controlled use of shadows. He was also the first to use real furniture in his sets. His crowning achievement was the massive castle he created for Douglas Fairbanks in Robin Hood (1922).
2Inducted into the Art Directors Guild Hall of Fame in 2004.
3His only son, Bill, when an adult, had psychological problems which resulted in his treatment with electric shock therapy. Because of this, Bill needed constant care, which became his father's sole responsibility after Bill's mother's death. Despondent, the elderly Wilfred shot his son in the head and killed him as he slept, before taking his own life with the same gun.
4He was the first film director to use klieg lights.
5He originated interior lighting in the American film industry.
