Founded by Andi Engel in 1975, Artificial Eye is a world cinema pioneer that has since its inception championed the work of towering auteurs like Krzysztof Kieslowski, Eric Rohmer, Andrei Tarkovsky, Alain Resnais, Robert Bresson, Bela Tarr and Marguerite Duras. Artificial Eye has released more winners of the Cannes Palme d'Or than any other UK distributor, with titles including ‘The Class’ (2008), ‘The White Ribbon’ (2009), ‘Amour’ (2012) and ‘Blue Is The Warmest Colour’ (2013). Upcoming releases include '45 Years' by Andrew Haigh starring Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay.
