Sudden death of Stephen Christian

A businessman who contributed massively to the Island's economy.

That is just one of the many tributes being paid to former head of Isle of Man Film, Steve Christian.

He died suddenly on Saturday aged 53.

Founder and chairman of CinemaNX, he oversaw the Island's film programme and was a director of Pinewood Pictures when it took over the Island's media development fund in 2012.

He stepped down from that role two years ago.

Mr Christian leaves a family.
