Entries for the 2018 Sit Down, Shutup and Watch Film & New Media Festival will be open from November 2017.

The film needs to have a person with a learning disability at its centre. This means that a person with a learning disability is the force behind the film not simply the subject matter! You can be the writer, the composer, the director, the producer, the cinematographer, the animator, the rock star or the hero…or all of those things – but it has to be your film.

Winning films will be selected in the following Award Categories:

  • Animation
  • Documentary
  • Music Video
  • New Media
  • Best Special Effects
  • Funniest Film
  • Most Original Film
  • Awareness / Our Story
  • People’s Choice
  • Best of Festival
  • The Hive Award for the organisation that submits the most films made by people with learning disability
