Close-Ups Events
These events are enjoyable, informal and sociable with no prior knowledge of the films necessary and opportunities to gain insights into many different aspects of film via a combination of input, informal discussion and a variety of fascinating film clips. Close-Ups are held at Thoresby College on the South Quay.

Our Close-Ups events are £5 for members and their guests, otherwise £6, which includes complementary refreshments.   This can be paid on the door but please book your place in advance by e-mailing email hidden; JavaScript is required as this helps us with catering and photocopies!

FRANCOIS OZON
Thursday 3rdDecember 7.30pm
CLOSE-UP VIA ZOOM

FRANCOIS OZON
Presented by Ruth Mulandi via ZOOM

This interactive session will give you the opportunity to explore the director behind Potiche, In The House and Frantz: Since his taboo-breaking, surrealist debut Sitcom in 1998, Ozon has been one of France’s most prolific and versatile writer-directors. He is known for his genre-bending films that often celebrate his cinematic influences from Hitchcock to Fassbinder to Bergman; writing some of the best roles for France’s leading actresses and producing thought-provoking films about (sexual) desire, the complexities of relationships and identity.
