La Guarimba International Film Festival



La Guarimba is a cultural organisation situated in the southern Italian region of Calabria with the aim of bringing the cinema back to the people and the people back to the cinema.
Guarimba, in the Venezuelan indigenous language, means “safe place”.

We work with cinema and illustration using culture as a vehicle to promote our values of participatory democracy, integration, human rights, and accessibility.

Our main projects are La Guarimba International Film Festival, an event dedicated to short films from all over the world, Kino Guarimba, a film residency for international artists, La Grotta dei Piccoli, an animation film festival for children and kids that includes creativity workshops in schools, and Il Terrenito, an open cultural space in Amantea.
