OUR AWARDS

Curzon Artificial Eye is widely recognised as one of the world’s best independent film distributors with a roster of international awards and box office success for specialised film.

Named as Winner of the Independent Distributor of the Year in 2014 at the Screen Awards, Curzon won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film for seven consecutive years; a BAFTA for Best Film not in the English Language for six years and has released more winners of the Cannes Palme d’Or than any other UK distributor.

In 2015 Curzon had the most successful box-office year to date with releases including Still Alice grossing more than £2.6 million and Andrew Haigh’s 45 years which was the first day-and-date release to cross the £1 million mark at the UK box office.

In 2020 Curzon broke another record by releasing quadruple Oscar winner Parasite, which went on to become the UK's highest-grossing foreign-language film of all time.
