Victoria is a German drama, directed by Sebastian Schipper, starring Laia Costa and Frederick Lau. Shot in a single take, the film follows a runaway party girl, who's asked to join three men as their getaway driver for a bank robbery in Berlin.
The film won the Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution for Cinematography at the 2015 Berlin International 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.
