Fuocoammare (Fire at Sea) is a 2016 Italian documentary film directed by Gianfranco Rosi. The film captures life on the Italian island of Lampedusa, a frontline in the European migrant crisis.

It won the Golden Bear at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival in 2016 and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards.

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.
