About Rialto Pictures

"The gold standard of reissue distributors" (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times), Rialto was founded in 1997 by Bruce Goldstein, who was joined a year later by partner Adrienne Halpern. In 2002, Eric Di Bernardo became the company's National Sales Director.

Rialto's past releases have included Renoir's Grand Illusion, both in 1999 andin a new 4K restoration for its 75th anniversary in 2012; Carol Reed's The Third Man — now back in theaters around the country in a new 4K restoration — and The Fallen Idol; Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers; Fellini's Nights of Cabiria (for the first time in its "director's cut"); Jules Dassin's Rififi; Godard's Breathless, Contempt, Band of Outsiders, Masculine Feminine, Le Petit Soldat, as well as the U.S. premiere of his Made in U.S.A.; Kurosawa's Ran; Buñuel's The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie; Clouzot's Quai des Orfèvres; the Boulting Brothers Brighton Rock; Jacques Becker's Touchez pas au Grisbi; Bresson's Au Hasard Balthazar and Diary of a Country Priest; Resnais' Last Year at Marienbad; the U.S. premiere of the original, uncut Japanese version of Godzilla; the U.S. premiere of the complete, uncut version of Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Cercle Rouge; the U.S. premiere of Melville's Army of Shadows, which became the most
critically-acclaimed film of 2006; and the U.S. premiere of Claude Sautet's Max etles Ferrailleurs.

In 2013, in collaboration with the British Film Institute and Park Circus Films, Rialto began touring "The Hitchcock 9" – Alfred Hitchcock's nine surviving silent films, all newly restored by the BFI. Additional 2013/2014 releases included a digital restoration of Godzilla for its 60th anniversary; restorations of Joseph Losey's two collaborations with Harold Pinter and Dirk Bogarde, The Servant and Accident; Godard's Alphaville; Robin Hardy's definitive cut of The Wicker Man; and Rob Reiner's This Is Spinal Tap.
Recent releases include a stunning new 4K restoration of Alain Resnais' debut feature Hiroshima Mon Amour and the first U.S. release of Paul Grimault's French animated classic The King and the Mockingbird, both of which were presented at the 52nd New York Film Festival; a new 4K restoration of the complete uncut version of Marcel Carné's Le Jour Se Lève, which puts back scenes censored by the Vichy government, and Mario Monicelli's The Passionate Thief.

Rialto began 2015 with a reissue of The Film Foundation's spectacular new 4K restoration of Powell & Pressburger's The Tales of Hoffmann and René Clément's Forbidden Games. In addition to a new 4K restoration of The Third Man currently playing across the U.S., this year has seen the release of five films by Claude Sautet – Les Choses De La Vie, César and Rosalie, Max et les Ferrailleurs, Vincent, François, Paul and the Others, and Nelly and Monsieur Arnaud – all newly transferred to DCP, new restorations of Army of Shadows and Rififi, and the 25th anniversary release of Whit Stillman's Metropolitan. Rialto will also release Stig Björkman's new documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words, an official selection of the Cannes, Telluride, and New York Film Festivals, in the fall of 2015.

In 1999, Rialto received a special Heritage Award from the National Society of Film Critics, and in 2000 a special award from the New York Film Critics Circle,presented to Goldstein and Halpern by Jeanne Moreau. The two co-presidents have each received the French Order of Chevalier of Arts and Letters.

In 2013, Goldstein became the first person ever to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award for Film from George Eastman House. He has also received career awards from Anthology Film Archive and the San Francisco Film Festival (Mel Novikoff Award). For its 10th anniversary in 2007, Rialto was honored with a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and similar tributes were held at George Eastman House in Rochester, the AFI Silver Theater in Washington, and the SIFF Theater in Seattle. The Criterion Collection also issued a special gift box set, 10 Years of Rialto Pictures. Rialto's 15th anniversary was observed in 2012 with a Film Society of Lincoln Center series entitled "15 For 15: Celebrating Rialto Pictures." In 2012, Rialto became the U.S. theatrical and non-theatrical representative of the Studiocanal library of over 2,000 international classics.
