Swedish director Ruben Östlund examines the emotional consequences of an avalanche in the Alps when a man's selfish reaction causes cracks in his relationship with his wife and children.
Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, the film was also nominated for a Golden Globe.
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.
