From the BAFTA Award-winning filmmaker Paweł Pawlikowski, the film follows the story of Anna, a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland, who is on the verge of taking her vows when she discovers a dark family secret dating back to the years of the Nazi occupation.

Ida was initially supported through MEDIA development funding with a grant awarded to Danish co-producer Phoenix Film and the project going on to win the MEDIA prize at Cannes in 2010. Creative Europe then continued to assist the production in its journey to the screen, with distribution support through the Sales Agents scheme as well as the Automatic and Selective distribution schemes.

Receiving widespread critical acclaim, the film has gone on to pick up a number of European and international awards, including Best Foreign Language Film at the 2015 Academy Awards.
