Christy initially co-founded the Isle of Man Film Festival with Dave Armstrong in 2001 as a platform for local film makers to exhibit their productions; since then, they have worked alongside a team of passionate, tireless volunteers to build IOMFF into the Internationally recognised event it is today, with filmmakers coming from around the world to screen their creations or just to experience the festival - and the Island location - first hand.

Our Patron is Film Critic Mark Kermode (BBC/Observer) and our varied events have included themed outdoor screenings in castles and abandoned amphitheatres; silent cinema movie screenings with live band accompaniment; Q&A screening events with actors such as the late Sir John Hurt.

We have been delighted to welcome high profile guests including Katharina Kubrick, John Rhys-Davies and BAFTA nominated Amma Asante to participate in our events and screen their films.
