    Growing up in rural Australia taught Priscilla Cameron the skill of keen observation. Her fascination with the behavioural quirks of animals was soon transferred to people. She discovered filmmaking to be the perfect medium for exploring this life-long passion. Since then, Priscilla has been tenaciously honing her art and craft as a writer-director. In 2012, her short BEETLE FEEDERS was part of the Berlinale Co-Production Market. In 2017, her first feature, THE BUTTERFLY TREE, was selected at Toronto IFF.
