The "TeleFilm-Chisinau" Department functions as a production structure, created based on the Decision no. 55 of 03.07.2017 of the Supervisory Board.
The "TeleFilm-Chisinau" Department produces documentary films: reports, essays, art and ethnography films, scientific, experimental, etc. for broadcasting on public TV channels, for the TV fund, for internal and external beneficiaries, for participation in national and international festivals, etc.
"TeleFilm-Chisinau" aims to promote the talents with vocation for the documentary film by providing the technical possibilities for making the films.
Cinematographic creations are made by a team of professionals, trained and crafted on the National Television's filming platforms, which aims to give new impetus to the "TeleFilm-Chisinau" creations.
The studio "Telefilm Chişinău" was founded in 1967. More than 300 documentary films have been made in this studio. Some have resisted in time, others have remained in the archives of national cinematography as propaganda samples of a totalitarian regime.
After 1989, the economic conditions were not very favorable for the development of cinema, and Teleradio Moldova, with no financial resources, gave up the "Telefilm Chisinau" studio.
After decades of inactivity, the studio was reopened in 2017 with the support of Coe and the EU through the project "Promoting Media Freedom and Pluralism in the Republic of Moldova".
