Is there a difference between a Christmas film and a film that happens at Christmas? You’ve probably heard the age-old debate over which category Die Hard falls into. Should it be solely a matter of the calendar or do a ‘proper’ Christmas films have to reflect the events and spirit of the season?
Whatever the answer, we’re pretty sure of our favourites. You could say our Production Director Saxon Rix knows a bit about films and is a particularly avid watcher of the Christmas variety. Naturally, because of his expertise, we asked him to speak for us. Sax has compiled a list of his favourite Christmas films below. SPOILER ALERT: Sorry, Die Hard fans – it isn’t featured. SPOILER ALERT 2.0: He’s very particular.
