The striking and dramatic scenery of Tasmania will be on show to the world later this year when it makes an appearance at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival.
Titled ‘The Hunter’, the film stars Frances O’Connor, Willem Dafoe and Sam Neill and tells the story of a European mercenary who has been sent to the wilderness of Tasmania on a search for the last Tasmanian tiger.
The Hunter is one of the most exciting films to be shot in Tasmania to date, and showcases Tasmania’s breathtaking landscape. It is hoped that the Academy Award-nominated Dafoe may make a return trip to Tasmania to promote The Hunter.
The film, based on the Juliet Leigh novel, is directed by Australia’s Daniel Nettheim and was shot completely in Tasmania.
It is set to be released in cinemas nationwide in early October.
