IoM Film Festival put on hold

Organisers aim to be back in 2020

The Isle of Man Film Festival has been put on hold for 2019, organisers have confirmed.

Dave Armstrong has made the announcement this lunchtime, saying there were, 'many factors and reasons' for the decision, but has not gone into detail.

He says this does not mean the end for the festival, though, as he and his team are already working on a, 'bigger, better, hugely exciting event next year'.

Dave adds there also some plans in the pipeline for smaller, interim events.
