The Tree screening at Cinefest Oz in beautiful Busselton, Western Australia, went down a treat. Maybe it was the rapturous reception from the country crowd, maybe it was the sunny winter's day, or maybe it was the proximity of the famous Margaret River wine region. Busselton seems like the perfect place to celebrate French-Australian cinema.
