Foxtrot is a 2017 drama film by Israeli director Samuel Maoz. The film was screened in the competition section of the 74th Venice International Film Festival where it won the Grand Jury Prize. It was also screened in the Special Presentations section at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.

A troubled family must face the facts when something goes horribly wrong at their son's desolate military post. Michael and Dafna are devastated when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats. While his sedated wife rests, Michael spirals into a whirlwind of anger only to experience one of life's unfathomable twists, which rivals the surreal military experiences of his son.

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 acquisitioin 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.
