The Tree at Mission Beach Film Festival

The Tree screening at the Gala Opening Night of the Mission Beach Film Festival was a huge success over the weekend, led by actor and environmental campaigner Ms Daryl Hannah. Local Queenslander, and Tree star, Bob Mackay, was at the festival with his family (so jealous!!), and was name- checked by Daryl Hannah when she introduced the film.

The audience, obviously appreciative of their local talent, let up a huge roar when Bob appeared in the film!!!! Check out Bob Mackay when you see The Tree, in cinemas from September 30.

Prior to the opening night festivities Ms Hannah was joined by Malcolm and Lucy Turnbull, and
festival sponsors at a glamorous pre-screening VIP soiree at The Elandra Resort where Ms
Hannah stayed.
Festival Curator Sue Clothier said ‘Elandra was the perfect environment to thank the supporters
of the festival as we looked out over the Coral Sea to Dunk and Bedarra Islands. Daryl was
stunned by the beauty.’
