“It’s an honour to be able to present Tanna at the opening night of the Bethany Arthouse Film Festival,” Dean said.
“It’s a wonderful festival with a very big heart.”
The crew from another Australian film featuring in the festival, Monsieur Mayonnaise, will also take questions from the festival-launch audience.
