deFilm is a Bucharest-based production company founded in 2009. While we started by producing independent shorts that were met with international success, the company has in time developed steadily to embrace a diverse portfolio and a growing network of partners as well as financing resources. We engage all types of cinematic productions, welcoming diverse approaches and styles that take on the creative stakes that match our values and interests. We enjoy growing together with filmmakers that we can build long-lasting relationships with. Accolades for our work so far include selections or prizes in major international film festivals, such as Cannes, Locarno, IDFA, Sarajevo or Karlovy Vary.
In addition to our own productions, we are glad to come alongside selected partners and bring full production services for cinematic work, as well as commercials.
