Sit Down Shut up and Watch

Tutti Collective

SDSW is a learning disability led collective which presents an international film festival every two years. The festival features the work of learning disabled film-makers. SDSW also promotes skills development for learning disabled film-makers through workshops and online resources.


Sit Down Shutup and Watch’s Vision is to live in a world where learning disabled people achieve their creative dreams and screen their work in Times Square, on iPhones and on every screen in between.

The SDSW Committee is made up of filmmakers and artists with learning disability:

Sara Egarr – Chair
Lee Witczak
Lorcan Hopper
James Kurtze
Tyson Pienaar
Katie Rose
Matthew Wauchope
Josh Wheeler

Our fifth Festival was held in October 2022. Over 35 extraordinary films were screened for free and online as part of the Festival.  Just click to the SDSW website or YouTube channel to check out the films.

The inaugural SDSW festival was held in 2014 in Angaston, South Australia.
