Background

The name stands for "Wytwórnia Filmów Dokumentalnych i Fabularnych" which means "Documentary and Feature Film Studio". It is one of the oldest Polish film companies formed in 1949 as the documentary unit of Film Polski.

1st Logo (1990's-2012)

Nicknames: "Polish Prism", "Dark Side Of Poland's Moon"

Logo: On a dark blue/black background we see a very shiny prism. A blue light beam appears and points to the left of it, causing the shiny particles of the prism to go off and refract red/white light. As the blue beam disappears the red beam shrinks so it can only be shown at the right side of the prism. After most of the particles go away, a row of blue squares appears behind the prism and moves to the bottom of the front of it, which then stops to make brighter holes. The prism also appears a bit more bright. "WFDiF" shines in below and turns into a metallic bexel. The finished logo zooms out and gives space to the fading blue subtitles:

WYTWÓRNIA FILMÓW DOKUMENTALNYCH I FABULARNYCH FILM STUDIO

Variants:

  • Background color was eventually changed to blue.
  • In 2009 the studio celebrated 60 years. During the animation the counter appears and begins to count decades until "60 lat" is formed.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Music/Sounds: A 3-note ascending string fanfare, with a piano flourish when the last note begins.

Availability: Appeared, through rarely, in late 90's on some films such as Wtorek. Later became much more common.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2012-)

Logo: We see a dark blue pyramid which opens, revealing white light. Then it rotates several times and closes again into the triangle, with a light still emitting at the right of it. It then spins and forms the white/red reflection rays of the logo. "WFDIF" appears below the logo, accompanied by the complete Polish name below: "WYTWÓRNIA FILMÓW DOKUMENTALNYCH I FABULARNYCH".

Variant: In it's early lifetime, the logo was darker.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Music/Sounds: A trumpet fanfare.

Availability: Current and fairly common.

Editor's Note: None.
