Zagreb Dox is an international documentary film festival taking place in Zagreb every year, in late February / early March.

ZagrebDox is a specialized festival that presents the best creative documentary films with an imaginary form and choice of topics that make it unique in Croatia and Europe. The festival's competition program has international and regional categories. The international competition presents the best auteur and creative documentary films from the world made and produced in the past year, with a focus on everything that is new, brave, off mainstream and intrepid.

The regional competition program consists of the films from Albania, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, italy, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Slovenia and Serbia. Tha fact that ZagrebDox lays great stress on the regional program makes it additionally attractive for all those who want to look into the latest regional production. Besides competition program, ZagrebDox has a number of non-competition programs – retrospectives and films focused on specific subjects, genres, techniques and esthetics.
