Film production has been my dream since I was young. I am a child of Khmer Kampuchea Krom. When I was a kid, I learned to read and write the Khmer language at the pagoda, and I hoped to become a writer. In 1999, when I was nine years old, my family moved to Cambodia. I believed that I would become a writer when I grew up, so I took short courses related to screenwriting. Unfortunately, after I graduated, the opportunity to become a film writer was low at the time, and it was difficult to find a job in the film industry. In 2015, I decided to start my own film production company with an initial capital of $1,000. With the help of my husband, family, and one staff member, the film production company has been running successfully until today.

Starting from a single employee to 150 employees, our company is also providing job opportunities to over 200 artists per year. We started the company by making 3-minute films posting on Facebook.

And currently, we produce hundreds of films a year, with variety of contents such as:

  • 250 TV Series per year

  • 24 feature films per year

  • 52 Life Films per year

  • 18 Life Series per year


We also developed our own movie app called Sastra Film App, which has variety of creative contents to entertain our audiences regardless of their age. We are committed to develop ourselves and together, we bring Cambodian Film to the world.
