LevelK Inks U.S., U.K. and More Deals on ‘The Butterfly Tree’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Scandinavian sales outfit LevelK has scored a flurry of sales on Priscilla Cameron’s “The Butterfly Tree” starring Melissa George.

The Butterfly Tree,” which played at Toronto in the Discovery section, has been acquired for North America (Gravitas Ventures), the U.K. (Eureka Entertainment), Southeast Asia (Astro), Russia/CIS (Kinologistika/NDPlay) and Estonia (Estin Film). Encore Inflight has bought worldwide airline rights. LevelK is in the process on closing more deals at AFM.

George (“The Slap”) stars in the film opposite Ewen Leslie (“Top of the Lake”). The coming-of-age tale centers on a widowed father and his teenage son who fall for the same woman, a former burlesque queen-turned-florist. As father and son discover they are competing for the same woman, old wounds are reopened.

“The Butterfly Tree” was one of the final 10 feature projects to be selected for the 2014 Berlinale Project Talent Market out of 4,167 entries from 79 countries. It was developed through the prestigious Binger International Film Lab after Cameron was selected for the intensive six-month residential director’s program.

The film was produced by Bridget Callow-Wright for Midwinter Films. It was financed by Screen Queensland, Cowlick Entertainment Group, MIFF Premiere Fund, Film Victoria, The Post Lounge and Vendetta Prods.

Vendetta Films will handle the Australian release on Nov. 23.
