New Island film proposal surfaces

Bid to create film industry on IOM

Could we be set to see a revival of the film industry on the Isle of Man?

That's the hope of film producer Tim Fielding who has a slate of ten films he wants to be entirely produced on the Island.

Last year it was confirmed the Media Development Fund, linked to the government's deal with Pinewood Studios, lost more than £26 million.

Tim Fielding says his proposal is different from the past as it will establish a sector on the Island to deal with all aspects of film production.
