Success Story / Achievements: 

Transylvania Studios Project

Within the Cluster was formed an interest group with regard to film. The discussions started in the beginning of 2017 with the clear intention of accessing European funding – Operational Programme on Competitiveness, Action 1.1.1. Big Infrastructures for Research- Development – Innovation Clusters. The project initiative refers to the development of the film industry in the North-West region of Romania and is putting Cluj-Napoca on the map of the big film production centers. The project proposal,  “Transylvania Studios”,  is meant to be a collaborative project of the Cluster for Creative Industries Transylvania together with the well-known Cluj-Napoca Universities ( Technical University, Art and Design University, Babes-Bolyai University), the Cluj-Napoca Municipality, and companies coming from the private area and having as object of activity the film industry.

The objective of the project is the development of the research and development infrastructure for creative industries: film production studio, research center, creative hub, render farm, sound studio, new media studio, editing stations, scenography workshops.

We consider that this project has a very high complexity of objectives and activities, as described above, is in accordance with the Cluster’s strategic objectives and for sure will have a positive impact on the majority of the Cluster participants and industry in general, because it will offer the necessary infrastructure for most of the companies that operate in the creative industries field.

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 


The Transilvania Creative Industries Cluster is the first cluster of creative industries in Romania, and after just one year of its founding, it succeeded in obtaining the bronze label from ESCA. 

The cluster's members work in different areas of the creative industries sector and actively contribute to the ever-growing development of the region through the products and services it delivers.

Transilvania Creative Industries Cluster thrives to develop new collaborative projects inside of the cluster and also with other fields of activity in order to deliver new trans sectorial projects.
