Be a Rialto Friend

Let's be Friends

Rialto Friends are film fans with an open eye to the world.

Because Rialto is:
• A hot spot in the Pijp, well-known in Amsterdam and unique in the (cinematic) world.
• A welcoming space for curious independent film fans.
• A cinema that seeks to engage with filmmakers and audiences.
• A counterbalance to the dominant role of the commercial American film industry.
• A community cinema-turned-springboard for European and non-Western filmmakers.

For an annual contribution of €60* or more you can become a Rialto Friend. With your contribution, you will be supporting Rialto’s activities, as every euro will be spent on films and film programmes.

But that’s not all. As a Rialto Friend you qualify for various benefits, such as:
• An invitation for two for Rialto’s Season Opening Night (early September).
• An invitation for two for a film that premiered during the International Film Festival Rotterdam (February).
• Priority when booking tickets for Saturday night.
• Priority when booking tickets for World Cinema Amsterdam.
