Khmer Mekong Films (KMF) is a major Cambodian film and television production company based in Phnom Penh, capital city of Cambodia.

It grew out of the team created and trained by the BBC in 2004 to make a 100-episode TV drama about HIV for Cambodian television. The Taste of Life was funded by the British Government through DFID and managed by the BBC World Service Trust. With funding finished in 2006, producer Matthew Robinson stayed in Cambodia to form KMF with the Taste of Life Khmer production team.[1]

To date, KMF has produced dozens of television dramas, documentaries, information films, educational films, television commercials and public service TV spots.[2]

The company has also produced five Cambodian cinema films, Staying Single When (2007), Vanished (2009), 'Palace of Dreams' (2010), 'Day in the Country' (2015) & 'Price of Love' (2016). In 2015/16 'Day in the Country' won a number of awards at four international film festivals - Hollywood International Moving Pictures FF; Los Angeles International FF; New York City Indie Film Awards (including 'Best Actor' & 2nd Best Foreign Feature Film) & the Canada International Film Festival. In 2016 'Price of Love' won four awards at the Hollywood International Moving Pictures FF.

KMF aims to help develop the Cambodian film industry moribund since the country was devastated by civil wars (1967–75), the Khmer Rouge regime (1975–79) and occupation by Vietnam (1979–89).
