KMF evolved from a Khmer production team assembled and trained by the BBC.

In 2003 the UK Government funded a 100-episode TV drama to broadcast messages about HIV and Mother-and-Child health to Cambodians. The BBC, managing the project, hired a British TV veteran, Matthew Robinson, to create and produce it.

The local directors, writers, production staff, editors and actors were trained by experienced British TV consultants, hired during the year before shooting began.

The show, Taste of Life, a hospital drama - soon dubbed “Khmer ER”, was an instant success, airing on TV5, at that time Cambodia’s main entertainment station, and repeated on the state channel, TVK.

Its entertaining storytelling and high production values achieved huge audiences:
up to 55% of the country's population tuned in.

The project ended in March 2006. Matthew Robinson, rather than return to the UK, invited Taste of Life staff to join a production company set up with British consultants, Bill Broomfield and Christopher Moss.

Khmer Mekong Films’ ambitions were two-fold: quality feature films for the local cinema circuit and spots, documentaries and information films for Cambodian and international clients.

KMF opened for business in July 2006.
