KyivNaukFilm (Ukrainian: Київнаукфільм Kyïvnaukfil′m, sometimes translated as Kyiv Science Film) was a film studio in the former Soviet Union located in Kyiv, Ukrainian SSR, established in 1941.

Description[edit]

Kyivnaukfilm, an abbreviation for "Kyiv Science Films", was at one time the largest European studio for non-fiction films.[when?] Its main task was production of popular science films and documentaries covering a broad range of topics. In addition, it released 342 animated films, a large number of which are still popular today, such as a series about Zaporizhian Cossacks (directed by Volodymyr Dakhno), Adventures of Captain Vrungel series, Doctor Aybolit, and a version of Treasure Island (all three directed by Davyd Cherkaskyi). The studio's films received numerous awards at international and national film festivals.

Film director Feliks Sobolev (Animals' Tongue, I and Others, Can Animals Think?) and studio Editor-in-Chief Yevheniy Zahdanskyi are considered to be trailblazers and figures of major influence in the documentary field in the former Soviet Union. Every year the studio released over 400 films.[when?]

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Kyivnaukfilm went into decline and was renamed National Cinematheque of Ukraine.[when?]
