* A series of ground-breaking film masterclasses are being presented by Big Close-Up, bringing top international film directors and industry professionals into rare conversations with the next generation of British film-making talent. The masterclasses aim to inspire tommorow's film-makers by providing them with the chance to meet and study the work of experienced directors at close quarters. The first masterclass is due to be held this month with Mike Newell, director of 'Donnie Brasco' and 'Four Weddings and a Funeral'. For more information, contact Simon Steven on 0171 247 8881.
