5 November 2014

If you find yourself looking for something to do on Saturday, come along. If you have plans, cancel them. Just make sure you come see the Sit Down, Shut Up and Watch Film and New Media Festival’s “Best of the Fest” screening on Saturday 8 November 2014 at the South Australian Film Corporation.

The “Best of Fest” includes a program of 19 short films covering a diverse range of themes, including; drama, animation, music videos, and comedy. All films were made by learning disability filmmakers and were chosen as finalists at the very first Sit Down, Shutup and Watch, Film & New Media Festival held last Friday 31 October, in Angaston, Barossa Valley, South Australia.

The “Best of Fest” brings this showcase to you with its first official roadshow. The program will be screened at the SAFC’s state-of-the-art facilities at Adelaide Studios.

The “Best of Fest” program was selected from over 43 entries from around the world, with finalists representing filmmakers from South Australia, Victoria, Germany, Ireland and United Kingdom.

Patrons will also have the opportunity to vote in The People’s Choice Award, which will be tallied, announced and presented on the day by special guest, Quentin Kenihan.

Come and see some amazing short films made by people with learning disability. Fun, quirky, wonderful, sad, funny and awe-inspiring!
