Krigen (A War) is a Danish war drama written and directed by Tobias Lindholm (Borgen, A Hijacking), and starring Pilou Asbæk and Søren Malling. It tells the story of a Danish military commander, who is accused for civil murder in Afghanistan, while trying to save his squad.

The film was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards.

Danny Perkins, CEO of StudioCanal, said:

"The support of Creative Europe makes a genuine difference to our release strategies - it is important to provide UK audiences with a diverse film choice and through distribution funding of this kind we are able to take more risks with our film choices and show more ambition in our release plans."
