Rialto Distribution Aquire Award Winning “Gloria”


Rialto Distribution Aquire Award Winning “Gloria” at the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival

February 18th - Rialto Distribution announced today that they have acquired the Australasian distribution rights for festival hit, GLORIA.

GLORIA, a Chilean drama directed by Sebastian Lelio and produced by Chilean film industry powerhouse, Pablo Larrain (NO, TONY MONTERO), scored three trophies, including the Silver Bear Award for Best Actress Paulina Garcia.
Garcia, who plays a 58-year-old divorcee looking for love, helped make the film one of the buzz titles of the festival with her stunning performance.

GLORIA also won the Ecumenical Jury award for best Competition title and the Prize of the Guild of German Art House Cinemas.

“This really is filmmaking at its apex. We are thrilled to have acquired such an engaging, hilarious and heartfelt film - it really is a crowd pleaser and Paulina Garcia shines in one of the best performances I have seen in recent times,” Kelly Rogers, CEO of Rialto Distribution, said. “After all of the international acclaim for Pablo Larrain’s NO, releasing in cinemas in April in Australia and late March in New Zealand, we are thrilled to be bringing local audiences another quality film, in what is an exciting time for Chilean cinema”.

GLORIA will be released in Australia and New Zealand in late 2013.
