To celebrate the release of Martin Scorsese's new film, Silence in cinemas New Year’s Day

To celebrate the release of Silence, the new film from Academy Award®-winner Martin Scorsese, we're giving one lucky reader the chance to win a film director workshop at a top film academy in London.

Martin Scorsese’s, Silence, is a masterpiece in film-making and to celebrate the film release, you can enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at life as a film director. You and a friend could be heading to London for an unforgettable experience at a top film academy. During this fantastic full-day workshop you’ll receive the essential toolkit for directing. Not only will you get a firm handle on how to work with actors and crew, but you’ll also learn how to take a film from script to screen, including finding locations and building sets, and gain an understanding of post-production! Rounding off this fabulous prize is a one night stay in a luxury hotel in the heart of the city.

From Martin Scorsese, one of the greatest living filmmakers, comes an epic drama starring Andrew Garfield, Adam Driver and Liam Neeson. Dealing with themes of faith and the endurance of belief and the human spirit, Silence, in cinemas New Year’s Day, is a must-see contender in this year’s awards race.

Based on the classic novel by Shūsaku Endō, this epic drama tells the story of two devout and reverent young Jesuit priests, Father Rodrigues and Father Garrpe, who, in the early 17th century, face the ultimate test of faith as they journey to Japan in search of their mentor, Father Ferreira, who travelled to Japan many years before and has now gone missing. Upon arrival in Japan, the two young priests discover a country in which Catholicism has been banned and where the new government is systematically eradicating any followers of the Christian faith; circumstances which test their beliefs to the limit as they search for the mysterious Father Ferreira.
