CinefestOZ Film Festival is pleased to announce the WA Premiere of MIFF@CinefestOZ film The Butterfly Tree as part of its 10th anniversary program.
The film will premiere at the Margaret River Cultural Centre on August 24, and will be followed by a special Q&A with the filmmakers.
Directed by Priscilla Cameron and produced by Bridget Callow-Wright, The Butterfly Tree tells the tale of Evelyn (Melissa George), a burlesque queen who bewitches single dad Al (Ewen Leslie) and his teenage son Fin (Ed Oxenbould). When father and son discover they are competing for the affections of the same woman, it reopens old wounds over the death of Fin’s mother.
The Butterfly Tree is Priscilla Cameron’s debut feature film as writer/director and was one of the final 10 feature projects to be selected for the 2014 Berlinale Project Talent Market.
