Apparition was a Los Angeles-based film distribution company founded by Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad in 2009.[1] It purchased, distributed and marketed films of a more "art house" and "cutting-edge" flavor than do major studios. It also released select films theatrically on behalf of River Road Entertainment (Pohlad's company) and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group.[1]

After the 2010 American release of the 2008 film The Square, the company shut down for unknown reasons.
