Join us on the 6th of December as we introduce Oscar®-shortlisted and BAFTA-nominated director Simone Giampaolo.
During the event, Simone will lead a family-friendly interactive session and take us behind the scenes of some of his fantastic creations, which include a private viewing of Only a Child and other movies with a festive theme.
After the masterclass, we will cheer to the festive period and taste some Swiss food and drinks and catch up with old and new friends. This will be followed by traditional Swiss Christmas puddings with a festive musical background. Those brave enough will also have the chance to join in and sing traditional Christmas songs.
