Inspired by the Tutti initiated 2011 residency of a team from the disability led Oska Bright Film Festival in Brighton U.K., disabled artists from Tutti, ‘Superstars’, (from the Mid North of South Australia) and the Barossa Valley, have formed a committee to create Australia’s first learning disability-led film festival.
Supported by Tutti, Newman’s Own Foundation, Mid North Health, The Barossa Council and Country Arts SA, the committee meets monthly in Gawler to plan workshops with other disabled artists in Regional South Australia in the lead-up to the first proposed Sit Down, Shutup and Watch Film and New Media Festival in 2014.
The committee members are: Chair: Lee Witczak, Vice Chair: Aimee Crathern, Samantha Charles: Secretary, Matthew Wauchope, Liam Wilkins, James Kurtze and Ryan Thomas.
For information about the workshops please call Tutti on 08 8422 6511 or email email@example.com.

Concepts, voice overs and artistic direction by the artists. Video and image editing by Tutti film and new media staff. Check out some of the results:
