The Gold Coast Film Festival will host a special preview screening of
THE BUTTERFLY TREE and Q&A with writer/director Priscilla Cameron.

Premiering at the Toronto Film Festival and garnering multiple AACTA nominations for Best Actor (Ewen Leslie) Best Original Score and Best Original Screenplay, Priscilla Cameron’s THE BUTTERFLY TREE is now making its way into cinemas.

Shot in the beautiful Tamborine Mountain hinterland, Melissa George returns to Australian film to star in this visually sumptuous and magical coming-of-age tale of love and loss alongside Ewen Leslie and Ed Oxenbould.

Evelyn (Melissa George), a burlesque queen, bewitches single dad Al (Ewen Leslie) and his teenage son, Fin (Ed Oxenbould) with her zest for life.

When father and son discover they are competing for the affections of the same woman, old wounds are reopened over the death of Fin’s mother. Through the vivacious Evelyn, Fin learns the power of forgiveness and relinquishes his goddess in return for a family.

In this seductive and heart-warming story, both men will discover the power of selfless love.

Don’t miss this special preview screening of The Butterfly Tree followed by a Q&A with writer/director Priscilla Cameron on Tuesday 21st November, 6.30pm at Event Cinemas Robina.
