Stefan Hunt


“I’m terrified of being the last to go and kids not finding me funny”

It was either a downpayment on a house in Sydney or a festival. In 2017, Stefan took a year off work directing award-winning films to turn We’re All Going to Die Festival into a reality at COMMUNE, Waterloo.

The concept for the festival evolved in response to his own experience with anxiety,“two years ago I suffered from anxiety, and it sucked,” says Hunt. “I was so afraid of the unknown that I couldn’t make a simple life decision. My life spiralled.”

At the height of this suffering Hunt found himself sitting on a rock overlooking the ocean where he penned a poem 'We’re All Going To Die'. It wasn’t morbid. In fact the sheer act of writing it shifted his perspective on his day-to-day fears.
