It is worth mentioning that the Telefilm Chisinau Studio was founded in 1967. Over 300 documentaries were made at the studio. Following the 1989 year, the economic conditions were not quite friendly for the development of the cinematography and the Teleradio-Moldova Company, for the lack of financial resources, renounced the Telefilm Chisinau studio. Following decades of inactivity, the studio was reopened in 2017 with the support of the Council of Europe and EU, through the project titled, Promotion of freedom and pluralism of mass media in Moldova.
