The Killing of a Sacred Deer, directed by Yorgos Lanthimos, is a sensational thriller that follows Steven Murphy (Colin Farrell), a cardiovascular surgeon who is forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice after his life starts to fall apart, when the behaviour of a teenage boy (played by Barry Keoghan) he has taken under his wing becomes sinister.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer previously also received development support through Creative Europe's Slate funding scheme, as well as distribution support through the Sales Agents and Automatic schemes.

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.
