Many valued documentary and feature films were created at WFDiF over the more than 60 years of its existence. It was here that the Polish Documentary School was shaped and films were created by artists like Andrzej Munk, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Jan Łomnicki, Tadeusz Makarczyński, Ludwik Perski, Maria Kwiatkowska, Władysław Ślesicki, Kazimierz Karabasz, Jerzy Hoffman, Edward Skórzewski and many others as well. In order to adapt these works to modern technological standards, WFDiF has endeavored to remaster and digitize them. As of this date, as part of the Digital Documentary Project, 100 documentary films fundamental to Polish cinema history have been remastered and more than 400 newsreels digitized. In addition, 8 feature films produced at WFDiF were digitized as well as a number of other films on behalf of other film studios.
SOUND EDITINIG LABORATORY
As part of the Digital Documentary Project, select Polish documentary films are remastered in specially designed studios. Through subsidies from WPR Kultura+, a new sound laboratory was created at the WFDiF Editing and Sound Studio. The studios were outfitted with professional equipment, monitors, speakers and soundproofing as per currently applicable standards. The remastering studio was custom built according to acoustic engineering designs which makes it unique on the audiovisual market. WFDiF owns a film laboratory as well as studios including, among others, the S1 Studio which has international Dolby Digital and THX certifications as well as image remastering laboratories.
IMAGE REMASTERING LABORATORY
Subsidies from the WPR Kultura+ Program as well as own financial investments enabled the creation of an independent image remastering laboratory. Specialized software and recently acquired data storage disk arrays facilitate and speed-up the remastering process. In the newly-constructed laboratory, the following films have been remastered on behalf of other film studios: The Structure of Crystal, War of the Worlds, The Debt, The Scar, Konopielka.
