Who We Are

Isle of Man Film is a regional screen agency, part of Isle of Man Government’s Department of Economic Development.

Our goal is to drive inward investment in relation to film and the creative industries.

Since 1995 Isle of Man Film has built a worldwide reputation, having co-financed and co-produced over 100 feature film and television dramas which have all filmed on the Island. Once one of the busiest areas of film production in the British Isles, the Isle of Man hopes to use its strong foundation in film to grow its television and new media industry.

Isle of Man Film offers a package of services for film producers and production companies. Equity investment via our partner Pinewood Pictures, a wealth of natural locations, a talented crew base, experienced facilities and services companies come together with a film-friendly Government.
