Matteo Garrone's Dogman follows the story of Marcello, a small and gentle dog groomer who finds himself involved in a dangerous relationship of subjugation with Simone, a former violent boxer who terrorises the entire neighbourhood. When Simone exploits him too much, Marcello must make a crucial and potentially dangerous decision in order to regain his dignity.

Marcello Fonte won the award for Best Actor at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival for his portrayal of Marcello.

Dogman's release in France was also supported through Creative Europe's Automatic Distribution  scheme.

Louisa Dent, Managing Director of Curzon Artificial Eye, said:

"Creative Europe support makes a significant contribution to Curzon's ability to champion European film. It not only helps us take acquisition risks and mount ambitious releases of non-national European films, but also encourages collaboration with European partners such as sales agents and filmmakers."

Curzon has also received funding from Creative Europe to support the release of European films in the UK through the Automatic Distribution scheme.
