In 2014 the selected Mannin Shorts screenplays to receive funding support from Isle of Man Film are:
- Battle of Ronaldsway by James Franklin
- Muck by John Craine
- Breathless by Shawn Sturnick
These projects were selected by a panel including representatives from the Arts Council and Isle of Man Film, alongside film industry professionals in the field of directing, distribution and art direction.
Isle of Man set strict match-funding criteria; the producers must raise substantial finance support elsewhere in order to qualify. As a result it is intended that the producers will accrue valuable knowledge in packaging and financing projects, along with experience in budgeting and scheduling.
The three projects will be shot during June and July 2014 with an aim to be previewed at the Isle of Man Film Festival in September, before being submitted to international film festivals.
