His next film Kynodontas (2009) won the Un Certain Regard Award at the Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Oscars in 2011 as Best Foreign Language Film, confirming Lanthimos as one of the major figures in new Greek cinema. He came to the Venice Film Festival for the first time in 2010 as an actor and co-producer of Attenberg, directed by his compatriot Athina Rachel Tsangari.
