Salford Speaks: Andy Willis shares his favourite festive flicks

Dec 14, 2017

It’s that time of year again so for our second monthly Salford Speaks podcast we decided to turn our attention to Christmas…and in particular Christmas movies!

Our resident film buff on campus Professor Andy Willis popped in the studio to chat about what he feels make the perfect festive flick, as well as revealing his top five Christmas films ever. Andy helped to establish the BA (Hons) Film Studies and BA (Hons) English and Film courses here at the University and is an active film season programmer. He is also a Senior Visiting Curator for our partner HOME, Manchester’s international arts centre.

We also share staff and student’s favourite festive films, as voted by you! Spoiler alert – you might be surprised to hear our second favourite features a white vested Bruce Willis and very angry Alan Rickman. 

You can stream it below on Soundcloud or even subscribe to Salford Speaks on iTunes (just search 'Salford Speaks'). As always we’d love to hear your feedback so do get in touch at Happy listening!
