Project: Moldova biographical documentary films

Moldova Foundation calls for your investment in
production of biographical documentary film series:

100 Famous People Born in Moldova

Despite their significant contribution to European and world science, literature, music and other fields, many famous people born in what once was the Principality of Moldova (now, Western Moldova in Romania, the Republic of Moldova and in Ukraine) are little known internationally.

To meet this challenge, the Moldova Foundation supports the creation of documentary films about Moldova-born famous people (within borders of the former Principality of Moldova + today Nistru East bank localities known as Transnistria). The films are produced by the Flacara (English: flame) Film Pictures, a Chisinau-based film production of “Justice-Studio,” a nonprofit association that is headed by a renowned journalist Luminita Dumbraveanu, who worked (among others) for Radio France International, Teleradio Moldova, Radio Vocea Basarabiei, Academy of Science of Moldova.

In 2012-2013, the Flacara Film, financed by the Moldova Foundation, produced five films:

1. Philosopher Dimitrie Cantemir
2. Diplomat Antioh Cantemir
3. Geographer and diplomat Nicolae Milescu Spătaru
4. Religious figure Petru Movila (watch the film here)
5. Composer Eugen Doga (film has been broadcasted on Moldova national TV) – watch it on YouTube.

The Moldova Foundation asks for your investment for the creation of other biographical documentaries:

1. Movie Director Emil Loteanu
2. Linguist Eugeniu Coşeriu
3. Nobel Prize Laureate George Emil Palade
4. Singer Sofia Rotaru
5. Writer Paul Goma
6. Composer George Enescu
7. Poet Mihai Eminescu
8. Singer Maria Cebotari
