CELEBRATION: Lawrence Skelly opens the exhibition in the Strand Shopping Centre

ISLE of Man Film is staging a special exhibition of images from some of the productions – television, film and animation – that have been made in the island since August 1995.

The exhibition in the Strand Shopping Centre in Douglas is being held to coincide with the island’s 100th film production, Dom Hemingway, a black comedy starring Jude Law and Richard E Grant, which got under way recently.

The free exhibition was opened by Department of Economic Development member with responsibility for film and media Laurence Skelly MHK last week and will run until the New Year.

Mr Skelly said: ‘This excellent exhibition is a real credit to all the local people who have worked on so many of our past productions, either behind or in front of the camera.’

In addition to the exhibition, Isle of Man Film will also be contributing to the Douglas Christmas lights extravaganza by projecting a ‘100 Manx-made Movies showreel’ in Strand Street, running for four nights and featuring classic clips and images from the past 17 years.

It begins tonight (Thursday, November 29) and will continue on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 4pm to 10pm nightly.

Isle of Man Film would like to thank the management of the Strand who have provided support and co-operation during the setting up and running of the exhibition.
