Barnaby Walter
Southampton, University of

I’m Barnaby, the Film Editor for The National Student. I am currently studying for an MA in Film & Cultural Management and have a degree in Film Studies & English Literature from The University of Southampton.

As well as writing for The National Student, I was the Film Editor for The Edge, the University of Southampton’s entertainment magazine, for three years. I have also written for the Radio Times and as a film critic for Out On Campus, a student magazine focused on the LGBT community.

I am completely and utterly obsessed with films (and, in this day and age of cinematic television, that includes good TV drama). 

As part of my role with The National Student I love putting together big features rounding up many films titles and expressing my opinions on cinema through my writing.
