Film Commissions & Offices

























Isle of Man Film

Wholly owned by the Isle of Man Government, Isle of Man Film, formerly known as the Isle of Man Film Commission was first set up in 1995 as part of the Isle of Man Government's economic diversification policy.

Company's aim is to raise the profile of the island's film industry and to actively market the Isle of Man as a film location at major film industry events.

Isle of Man Film acts as an equity investor in film and television in co-operation with legal team at Cains and media consultants, Gasworks Media.

Employment of Manx film workers and the use of ancillary Manx services is a vital factor in Isle of Man Film's consideration of applications.

In addition to the discretionary financial support offered, company acts as a facilitator in assisting with the logistics of production on the island.

Isle of Man Film can assist with organizing film crew accommodation, production supplies, crew and facilities, and locations. This includes the use of the island's state of the art purpose built film studio in the north of the island.

Over recent years, the Isle of Man has become one of the busiest areas of film production in the British Isles.

“You're never very far from where you are staying and you don't get long journeys to locations taking up lots of time and effort,” said “Lawless Heart” co-director Neil Hunter.

“The Isle of Man can easily double up for most UK and Irish Countries,” says producer Marc Samuelson, who shot “The Gathering,” and “Things to do Before You're 30” on the Island. “It's particularly good at resembling the Home Counties, Cornwall, Ireland and the Yorkshire Moors.”

“It is easy to shoot on the island as the locals are very open to film shoots, whereas in London everyone would rather you went away,” said “Lawless Heart” producer Martin Pope.

Isle of Man's Media Development Fund offers financial incentives to producers and film makers to film on the Island, subject to certain criteria.

The Isle of Man has architecture ranging from Medieval castles and towns to fishing villages, stately homes, untouched villages, Edwardian and Victorian houses, and newly built business parks and offices. As the island is a popular holiday destination, there are plenty of affordable hotels.
