About Film.md

Welcome to FILM.MD - the meeting place for those who love movies.

The lack of a national distribution network, the increase in the number of recently released national films, and the limited access of consumers to authentic cinematic cultural products are the context for which we created FILM.MD.

At the same time, FILM.md was born from our passion and ambition to project domestic films, international hits, and treasures from the national/world archive directly into the regions of Moldova - both in cities and various communities.

We are an enthusiastic team of filmmakers and professionals in the field of technological innovations, united to meet the needs of four exceptional groups: you - our loyal audience; film producers/distributors, local public administrations who share our vision, and commercial partners.

1. FILM.MD for you and for the wide audience passionate about movies

We bring beloved films with mobile screenings (open air) or traditionally set screenings in unconventional spaces, such as cultural houses or alternative locations.

Discover the Schedule of screenings in the Moldovan regions and Buy Tickets for the films that caught your attention, preparing for an unforgettable cinematic experience on the big screens with friends and family.

2. FILM.MD for Producers and Distributors of films

We offer a vibrant stage as a new market for the films we represent.

We protect intellectual property with a specially developed encoding system to manage films remotely, minimizing staff interaction with precious files. As filmmaker co-authors, we emphasize the quality of cinematic experiences, so whether we organize an open-air event or in a cultural house, we prefer to project films on screens with German canvases, Japanese projectors, and sound made in Italy.

We encourage you to collaborate with us to bring your films to a diverse audience. Contact us and let's create a success story for your projects in Moldova!

3. FILM.MD for Local Leaders

Are you a Mayor, Local Councilor, or Community Leader? FILM.md can be your partner in bringing a cinematic experience to your locality. We can organize mobile screenings - open air in special locations, cultural houses, or unusual spaces. Furthermore, we can propose a Partnership Agreement to establish sustainable measures that benefit all participants (the community, the venue manager, the local budget, etc.)

Contact us to bring the magic of film to the heart of the community.

4. FILM.MD for Commercial Partners

With its format and concept, FILM.MD will become a Promotional Platform for brands, companies, institutions, products, and services. We have proven time and again that a big screen and the right content in a friendly atmosphere can be convincing. Now, imagine more big screens, and let's discuss. We are optimistic that things will evolve quickly, and the slot for partners could be limited.

Background

We have a solid experience in promoting high-caliber films and organizing film events such as:

BRAVE FILM CARAVAN (2024)

CARBON, VARVARA, TUNETE - WORLD and NATIONAL PREMIERE (2022, 2023)

Integration

The development of the FILM.MD platform is the first segment of technological innovation within the startup complex RAVAC - Alternative Audio Visual Network of Cinemas and fits harmoniously into the priorities of Objective No. 4 of the "MOLDOVA EUROPEAN 2030" NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY, including:
