Zagreb Film Festival is an annual film festival held since 2003 in Zagreb, Croatia. The festival focuses on promoting young and upcoming filmmakers and regularly features several international programmes for their first or second films made.

Each festival edition usually features three international competition programs (for feature films, short films, and documentary films), and one short film competition program for Croatian filmmakers. In addition, the festival often hosts non-competitive screenings, such as selections of children's films or screenings of debut works made by established film directors.

Since 2006 the festival's main award is called Golden Pram. From 2003 to 2005 the main award was called Golden Bib.
