The SDSW Journey


The SDSW Festival Steering Committee spent three years planning and creating the first ever Sit Down Shutup and Watch Film & New Media Festival which was held in 2014.

A biennial event, SDSW 2016 was held at Angaston Town Hall, in the beautiful Barossa Valley, South Australia on  Friday 21 October 2016. For its second festival, SDSW had over 46 films submitted from across Australia and around the world.

In 2018, SDSW was bigger than ever – over 300 film entries and a two-day Festival!
