Beatrice Wood: Mama of Dada is a 1993 documentary film produced, directed and written by Tom Neff. Additional producers included Diandra Douglas and Amie Knox; Olavee Martin served as co-producer, and Belle Deitch as executive producer.

The documentary detailed the life and work of artist Beatrice Wood, particularly her experiences during the Dada art movement and her 1920s friendships with Marcel Duchamp and Henri-Pierre Roché.

The film, shot in 16mm, was first shown on March 3, 1993 at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, California to coincide with Wood's 100th birthday. It would later be broadcast on PBS on the American West Coast in October 1, 1993. On the East Coast it was shown in the Spring of 1994.

Many art consultants, artists, and owners of art galleries who exhibited Wood's art consulted on the film. They include: Francis Naumann, Rupert Pole, Lee Waisler and Garth Clark, and others.
