Bacalaureat (Graduation) is a 2016 Romanian-language drama film produced, written, and directed by Cristian Mungiu and starring Adrian Titieni and Maria-Victoria Dragus. Set in a small Romanian town, the film focuses on a doctor who takes matters into his own hands when an attack on his daughter jeopardizes her scholarship to a prestigious British university.

The film 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.
