France Vodnik (1903–1986) was a Slovenian literary critic, essayist, translator and poet from Ljubljana. He was mostly active in the interwar period, when Slovenia was part of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. He was the younger brother of the poet and critic Anton Vodnik.
Vodnik completed philosophy studies at the University of Ljubljana. France Vodnik was one of the main exponent of Slovene Christian left intellectuals who gathered around the journal Križ na gori (Cross on the Mountain). Together with the poet and thinker Edvard Kocbek, Vodnik was one of the first Slovene Roman Catholic intellectuals to profess the Personalist philosophy.
Vodnik emerged in the 1920s as a literary critic and columnist in the liberal conservative journal Dom in svet. By the mid-1930s, he was considered one of the most influential Slovene critics, together with the left liberal Josip Vidmar and the Marxist Ivo Brnčić
