Robin Campillo's ensemble drama 120 Battements Par Minute (BPM (Beats per Minute) follows Nathan, a young man who joins an AIDS activist group in 1990s Paris. As he attends the weekly meetings, he learns that some members prefer a more radical approach to their protests.

The film had its world premiere at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, where it won critical acclaim and four awards, including the Grand Prix.

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."
