"From our Tribe to yours"... Stevie Nicks letter to her Brisbane fans

Letter provided by Rodney Ward
My Dearest Friends,

I am so so excited for you to see my little film.  It is, to say the least, the diamond in my very long career.  To be able to invite you into my house for a year never seemed to be very possible but as the days flew by, that is exactly what happened. We started in Feb. 2010 and finished in Feb. 2011.  Moments like this just don't come along very often (if ever) so I feel very lucky that the harmonic convergence of the stars happened for Dave and I and all the crazy people who were involved.  I hope you love it as much as we do.

From our Tribe to yours

Stevie Nicks & Dave Stewart

This letter from Stevie and Dave was given to everyone attending the In Your Dreams film premiere in Brisbane tonight (Nov 13th).  Stevie was initially scheduled to attend the premiere which was to include a Q&A but with circumstances surrounding the cancelled Fleetwood Mac AU/NZ tour, she had to cancel.

In Your Dreams screens again in Brisbane on November 15th. Buy Tickets

Stevie Nicks appearance at the BIFF13 Q&A on November 13th in limbo

The Brisbane International Film Festival released a statement on their Facebook page regarding Stevie's appearance at the upcoming BIFF on November 13th where "In Your Dreams" was scheduled to be screened and Stevie was to attend a Q&A afterwards:

"As you have read, we were sadded to hear that Fleetwood Mac have cancelled their Australian Tour. Our thoughts are with John McVie & his family. #BIFF13 are still in discussions with Stevie Nicks' manager & will share any updates we have with ticket buyers shortly. 

At this stage, we are hopeful that the iconic Stevie Nicks can still attend #BIFF13, however, as you may appreciate, the circumstances have changed drastically from when we embarked on this negotiation. 

We thank you for your understanding. As soon as we have information to share on the status of Stevie Nicks travel committments we'll be in touch. The BIFF Team x"

THE Brisbane International Film Festival is back with a bang in 2013 
with the Australian premiere of Nicole Kidman’s Queensland-shot movie The Railway Man.

Courier Mail 22 Oct 2013
This year’s event includes the first Australian screenings of hot Oscar favourite 12 Years a Slave and provocative French Palme d’Or-winner Blue Is the Warmest Colour.

A host of international guests will walk the red carpet with music royalty Stevie Nicks, who will be in town touring with Fleetwood Mac, presenting her biographical film In Your Dreams - Stevie Nicks. BIFF will also present a 40th anniversary screening of the 1973 horror classic The Exorcist, followed by an intimate Q&A session with Golden Globe-winning actress Linda Blair.

BIFF will also host and celebrate the stellar career of Australian director and screenwriter Fred Schepisi ( Evil Angels, The Russia House, The Eye of the Storm).

BIFF director Jennie Hughes, in her first year curating the festival, is understandably excited at the calibre of films and talent on offer.

“I wanted (BIFF) to be packed full of goodies from opening night but to have events all through the festival," she said.
