3rd Logo (2001-2002)
Logo: On a cobalt background, we see a searchlight beaming around from the upper left corner. Then the picture zooms out into the circle, and the light flips vertically, then rotating again to the normal position and casting a reflection from the bottom of the circle. There are other circles with letters "i" and "F". The name reads "Vif International Films" and the whole logo is underlined.
