Welcome to Cinebutterflies PDF Print E-mail

For 27 years we have been producing films which are

  • scientifically rigorous
  • beautiful and moving

  • historically interesting and pertinent to our time

After 25 years of offering our films for sale, first as VHS tapes and then as DVDs, we have now decided to make them available to view free on-line. This process will be completed by the end of 2017.

Since 1995, these films have been presenting a selection of the world’s butterflies, especially those in the rainforests, as they could still be seen, under threat from the impact of climate change, at the close of the 20th and opening of the 21st centuries. They are filmed entirely in natural surroundings, often in close-up, sometimes heightened by music specially commissioned, but appropriate to the culture of the location.
