Past Events




Studio Maj was founded in 1989 by producer Dunja Klemenc, who was responsible for the children's programme at Radio-Television Slovenia (RTV Slovenia) between 1989 and 1997. It evolved into one of the most successful and acclaimed film production houses in Slovenia. Their extensive filmography includes such international co-productions as the Academy Award-winning French-Belgian-Italian-UK-Slovene co-production No Man's Land and Cirkus Columbia. Dunja Klemenc is the first film producer who has received the prestigious Metod Badjura Award for lifetime achievement in 2015.

The 1998 The Truths About Wine, a nine-episode series about viticulture and wine drinking culture, marks the beginning of the studio's documentary film production.
