During the final day of Isle of Man Film Festival our shortlisted film entries were shown to a packed audience in the morning followed by the awards ceremony in the afternoon. We were fortunate to have three of the festival winners in attendance: Gail Hackston (Cancer Hair), Brook Wassall (Postcard from 2013) & Sebastien Solberg (Modern Man). Also visiting for the festival were shortlisted filmmakers Thomas Hoffman (Mars Diffracts!), Mark A.C.Brown (Corinthian) and Oscar Nobi (Bill).
