Céline Sciamma’s third film is a beautifully observed examination of a young girl’s search for identity in the underprivileged suburbs of Paris.
The UK is one of 16 European countries where the film’s release is supported by the Selective distribution scheme.
Danny Perkins, CEO at StudioCanal, said:
"Creative Europe support makes all the difference for certain titles we acquire. It allows us to be more confident while launching them on the UK market, and consequently they reach wider audiences. In an increasingly busy release calendar the risk that distributors are taking with every film is growing. The grants help to mitigate the risk and support us in pursuing more ambitious release strategies."
