Call for films for 2022 – Sit Down Shutup and Watch Film Festival

Presented by

Sit Down Shutup and Watch


About the opportunity

Calling all learning disabled film makers!

The Sit Down Shutup and Watch (SDSW) Film Festival will be on again in October 2022!

Entries are now open for films that were made with a learning disabled person in a key creative role. Films can be submitted on Film Freeway with a $15 entry fee and film selection will be made by the SDSW Committee which is made up of filmmakers and artists with learning disability.

SDSW Vision:

To live in a world where learning disabled people achieve their creative dreams and screen their work in Times Square, on iPhones and on every screen in-between.

SDSW Mission:

  • Form a community of like-minded learning disabled filmmakers and new media artists who can teach others

  • To have our voices heard and to be taken seriously

  • Get other learning disabled people to express themselves creatively through digital arts and technology

  • Encourage other learning disabled people in the wider Australian and global community to connect, making physical location far less significant for our social relationships

  • To become a force for social change

The Festival will be held both online and in-person over 19 – 30 October 2022.
