RIALTO COMES OF AGE

Founded in 1997 in New York, Rialto Pictures has been called “the gold standard of reissue distributors” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times), and one look at the company’s prestigious catalog shows why. Along with acclaimed American cult and indie titles, Rialto distributes some of the most revered films in world cinema, including classics by Gillo Pontecorvo (THE BATTLE OF ALGIERS), Federico Fellini (NIGHTS OF CABIRIA), Akira Kurosawa (RAN) and Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (PEEPING TOM). Rialto’s past releases include Jean Renoir’s GRAND ILLUSION, both in 1999 and in a new 4K restoration for its 75th anniversary in 2012; the company’s roster is particularly strong in French cinema, with key works by Jean-Luc Godard, Robert Bresson and Jean-Pierre Melville. Rialto Pictures is also the U.S. theatrical and nontheatrical representative of the Studiocanal library of more than 2,000 international films.

As Rialto passes its 20-year milestone, join us for a weekend tribute to the distributor and enjoy some of the greatest masterpieces in film history on the big screen. Series also includes FORBIDDEN GAMES and DIVA.

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise, Grant Moninger and John Hagelston. Program notes by John Hagelston.
