    Hi Mary

    We are receiving lots of questions like this. This is a difficult one to answer

    Firstly, the film is only available in 3D (or IMAX, of which there is one movie theatre in NZ) but it is not going to be a blockbuster like Lord of the Rings. So the cinema groups won’t take it on commercially and show it all around the countryside… we’ve been trying to get that to happen for two or three years now.

    It is only short (50 minutes) but rather than never see it we thought we’d bring it here and hopefully find a corporate to sponsor it – someone who wanted to see ALL NZ children go and see it because of its educational value.

    (For an organisation that’s purely voluntary, we think we have done a pretty good job. And we don’t have the funds to really do the marketing and promotion that the film companies do.)

    So we’re taking small steps to get it here. Our plan was to attract potential sponsors to see it on Monday and Tuesday nights at Sylvia Park. After that we can re-evaluate where we are – but we depend on people like you to tell your friends and family members who live in Auckland and could possibly come along.

    If we had sell-out crowds at the event we would stand to make some profit and could not only put this back into getting schools along, but hopefully with the backing of the sponsor that came along and liked what he/she saw and could see a good fit with the product/service they were selling, they would be keen to work with us.

    So if you’re reading this and would like to come along, it’s not too late to book.

    More information here – and we will keep this page updated.

    “Flight of the Butterflies” in 3D

    Until we raise the funds to offer a subsidy we won’t know about where it can be screened (if ever), or any discounts. But we’re working on it!

    Sorry I can’t be more helpful
