ZagrebDox is an international documentary film festival established in 2005 and held annually in Zagreb, Croatia.

It is the biggest festival of its kind in South East Europe and its goals are to showcase documentary films from the region as well as to provide a meeting place for authors from all over the world, to offer quality documentary features to local audiences and to help promote documentary film as one of the basic film genres. Apart from screenings, the festival usually organizes workshops, presentations and pitching forums designed to help aspiring film authors in developing their projects. In addition to the official competition program (which is divided into a regional and an international category), the festival often features retrospectives of well-known authors and various national cinemas.

The festival is organized by a Zagreb-based film production company called Factum, and is usually held in February. The 2008 edition featured 140 films from 30 countries and attracted an audience of around 20,000 people.
