Irzykowski Film Studio
(Studio Filmowe IM. Karola Irzykowskiego)
   The Warsaw-based film studio named after film theorist Karol Irzykowski, which was founded in 1981 by a group of young graduates of the Łódź Film School, headed by Janusz Kijowski. Among several filmmakers associated with this studio throughout the years are Robert Gliński, Waldemar Dziki, Marek Koterski, Leszek Wosiewicz, and Wiesław Saniewski. The studio was managed by, among others, Janusz Kijowski (1988-1989), Mariusz Treliński (1989-1990), and Jacek Skalski (1991-1996). The studio produced thirty-eight features, among them several notable films such as Saniewski's Custody (1985), Wosiewicz's Kornblumenblau (1989), Jan Jakub Kolski's The Burial of a Potato (1991), and the winner of the 2003 Festival of Polish Films, Dariusz Gajewski's Warszawa. In 2005 the studio merged with Czołówka Film Studio.
