1st Logo (1997-2005)

Logo: A bright flickering splash occurs, which lights on the panning filmstrip. Each frame contains video footages of some movies. The strip becomes flat and flashes again, and then the letters rise from it, forming the name.


  • During its early years, the logo was bylineless.
  • This was adapted from the Concorde-Castle Rock/Turner logo used in its first year. In that variant, the shining flash turns into words that slide and form the name.
  • There is also a short version used on trailers, that starts with the flash.

Technique: The splashes and filmstrip moving, the letters rising.

Music/Sounds: An orchestral composition with flashing sounds. For the short version, the music is abriged.

Availability: Only in Germany, seen on VHS releases and older DVDs. Appeared on White Worm.

2nd Logo (2005-2019)

Logo: We move around giant blue, metallic letters, which form CONCORDE. The camera pans around and flies through "R" letter, then the logo comes into full view, with certain underline.


  • The home entertainment logo contains only last seconds of animation.
  • There is also a still variant.
  • Another variant has "Filmverleih" replaced with "Classics".
