About Us

Sit Down, Shutup and Watch Film & New Media Festival is Australia’s premier film festival for films made by people with a learning disability.

Everyone on the Steering Committee identifies as having a learning disability and a passion for films and filmmaking!

Like its sister film festival, Oska Bright Film Festival UK, Sit Down Shutup and Watch aims to raise awareness of learning disability led screen culture that seeks to promote cultural change, social inclusion and acceptance of high quality, original work by filmmakers with a learning disability.
