A Bigger Splash is an Italian/French drama film directed by Luca Guadagnino and written by Alain Page and David Kajganich, based on the 1969 film La Piscine.

While vacationing on a Sicilian island with her boyfriend, a rock star receives an unexpected visit from an old flame and his seductive daughter. The film stars Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ralph Fiennes and Dakota Johnson.

It competed for the Golden Lion at the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.

Danny Perkins, CEO of StudioCanal, said:

"The support of Creative Europe makes a genuine difference to our release strategies - it is important to provide UK audiences with a diverse film choice and through distribution funding of this kind we are able to take more risks with our film choices and show more ambition in our release plans."
