Supported by the South Australian Film Corporation (SAFC), Boys in the Trees tells the story of two estranged childhood friends who reunite on Halloween 1997 and embark on a surreal journey through their memories, dreams and fears.

Boys In the Trees is produced by John Molloy of Melbourne-based Mushroom Pictures with the bold and innovative Hedone Productions, led by South Australian producers Kate Croser and Sandy Cameron, co-producing the film. 

Boys In The Trees was shot across suburban Adelaide over five weeks in September 2015. Locations included St Peters, Port Adelaide, Unley Park, North Adelaide, Semaphore, Urrbrae, Brownhill Creek and Mitcham.
