After the establishment of People's Republic of China, in 1950 it has become a state owned film production unit and concentrated in the production of movies and government propaganda releases aimed to promote awareness and government policies in the common people.

Re constituted to a corporation
In the year 2000, Changchun Film Studio converted in to a corporation and re-christened as Changchun Film Studio Group Corporation and started producing commercials, feature films, movies, documentaries and TV series.

It is a sad state of situation to note that the studio has been losing its charm having faced stiff competition from the Hong Kong and Hollywood production houses. The state controlled board was hardly competent to produce the kind of script and technical capabilities to match with the main stream production houses owned and controlled by private enterprises. To revitalize the production and streamline the activities, the board opened its door to the public and created an extension which is called the Movie Palace. Here the new Chinese movies are being produced in lieu of the documentaries and pro government policy themed operas being created by Changchun Film Group Corporation. The Movie Palace was successful in producing some of the finest films. Tourists can have rare opportunity to meet their favorite film stars and will have the chance to see the various studio sets being created for the production of films. Palaces, forts, castles and artificial sceneries are created here, that were being used to shoot many Chinese classics.
