La Fille inconnue (The Unknown Girl) is a 2016 Belgian-French drama film directed by the Dardenne brothers. The film tells the story of a young doctor who lets the door buzzer of her small clinic go unanswered one evening after work hours and then grows determined to discover the identity of the young African woman found dead nearby when the police see from a security tape that she had been the person ringing at the door.

It was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

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.
