Filmfest true to its roots says critic

IOM film screenings during final day

It's the final day of events at this year's Isle of Man Film Festival (Sun)

International shortlisted entries in the short film competition are being screened through the day.

Then at 4.30pm the Gala Awards take place along with yet more screenings, this time of films made in the Isle of Man.

One of the highlights of the festival took place last night when film critic Mark Kermode interviewed Lord of the Rings star John Rhys-Davies on the Gaiety stage.

Mark says he's always delighted to come to a festival which celebrates its true community roots.

This year's festival comes to a close at 7pm with the final showing of Labyrinth - featuring the late David Bowie.
