Idea Film Distribution

We created Idea Film, several years ago, during a cup of coffee. So yes, it didn’t take long till we figured out that this is what we wanted to do, together. And then, we drank some more coffee with clients that became our friends. This didn’t take long either. We continue to do so with old friends and new clients and collaborators. Some things don’t need to change. This friendly approach and our background in film and commercial production for over 16 years was appealing to more than 80 clients from all over the world. Today there are more than 400 projects we took part in.

Malno / Rofilco

Set up in 1992, we are one of the most stubborn film companies in Romania. Image tailors. Obsessed with details. Rhythm inventors. World wanderers. People with a story. Film has unique cuts. Shapes your imagination. Hides imperfections and reveals the inner beauty. Outlines the finest details and complements the whole.

The film devises the story without letting you see the stitches. Shows you glimpses of the future or travels back in time. Full of colour. Sometimes shows grace just in black and white. Catches your eye with millions of pixels or with just one shape on the screen. For a second or for hours.
