Vox Feminae Festival is an international festival held annually, since 2007, in Zagreb, Croatia.

Vox Feminae Festival was founded with the aim to promote and increase the visibility of women's artistic achievements through the international competition film program, exhibitions and performances as well as workshops and educational content.

Vox Feminae Festival presents and rewards films of all genres, and topics include gender equality, women's creativity, and achievements, non-stereotypical gender roles and relationships, as well as feminist and LGBTIQ themes. Vox Feminae Festival especially encourages submission and presentation of the biography films that celebrate women who made significant contributions to the society in the fields of culture, politics, science, human rights, and art.

Vox Feminae Festival is organized by non-profit organization Expanse of Gender and Media Culture ‘Common Zone’ that provides innovative cultural and gender patchwork.
