The Studio continues the editorial work of the Polish Newsreel (Polska Kronika Filmowa-PKF) and documentaries that were in operation until December 31st 1990 within the structures of the Documentary and Feature Film Studio (Studio Filmów Dokumentalnych i Fabularnych) in Warsaw. In 1991, two state owned film institutions were established: KRONIKA Film Studio and WIR Film Studio that were successful at producing documentaries. Until December 1994, the KRONIKA Film Studio continued to produce the Polish Newsreel (PKF). This was also made possible by the close cooperation with the Public Television, which was a co-producer of over hundred documentaries in addition to broadcasting PKF. In 2005, WIR Film Studio was dissolved and KRONIKA Film Studio took over its archives. In the same year, the National Film Institute was established and the forms of film financing underwent modifications. In 2010, the Studio was transformed into a state treasury company which hindered its development. Since 2016, the Studio has been again a national cultural institution.
