Background
: Mosfilm (Мосфильм) is a film studio, which is often described as the largest and oldest in Russia and in Europe. Its output includes most of the more widely-acclaimed Soviet films. The company was founded in 1920 on the base of two nationalized pre-revolution film studios, and gained the current name in 1935. The logo was introduced in 1947.

1st Logo
(1947-2005)

Nickname
: "The Russian Statue"

Logo
: On a dark sky background, we see a model of the monument "Worker and Kolkhoz Woman" by Vera Mukhina and on a corner, we see the Spasskaya Tower of the Moscow Kremlin. The monument is set in a side view, and it turns to be seen at the front. As it turns, the sky turns red. Under the monument, the word "Мосфильм" on a crystallized texture, which was present on all the animation, illuminates in.

FX/SFX: The monument turning, the sky turning red.

Cheesy Factor: It's very professional; nothing to worry about.

Variants:
  • The logo animation was reproduced in 2007's film The Irony of Fate 2 to save the old style of the original movie. There's snowing in the logo.
  • Different logo was used on Vojna i Mir. The statue is on the right, seen from the side, and the name is written left to it in ordinary font.

Music/Sounds
: Silent. In 2007's version the chimes are heard with snowing sound.

Availability: Common; can be seen on every Mosfilm movie. If you watch US prints of those movies, the Janus and Criterion logos would be seen before this one.

Scare Factor: None.


2nd Logo
(2005- )

Mosfilm (2005)Mosfilm (2012)

Nickname: "CGI Russian Statue"

Logo: We start on a black background. Then, some light rays start to appear. We turn from the side of the monument "Worker and Kolkhoz Woman" by Vera Mukhina, which is shining. As the camera turns the sky starts to be seen, and we set in front of the monument. The word "Мосфильм" on a crystallized texture fades in. The logo was slightly redesigned for the film White Tiger in 2012, showing the orange background.

FX/SFX: The monument shining, the camera turning, the sky illuminating.

Cheesy Factor: Nice CGI; nothing to worry about.


Music/Sounds: A soft musical entry.

Availability: Common; can be seen on every Mosfilm movie from 2005 onwards.

Scare Factor: None.





3rd Logo
(2012- )
Mosfilm (2013)

Nickname: "CGI Russian Statue II"

Logo: A copper-colored monument from the previous logos pans over the top and shines. The large 3D word MOSFILM in red-orange slowly slides to the screen.

FX/SFX: The animation, which looks a bit computerish.


Music/Sounds: A humming soundtrack.

Availability: Was presented in 2012 as a new logo; it was expected to appear on future releases, but currently only seen on their wesbite mosfilm.ru.

Scare Factor: Low.
