La Guarimba International Film Festival



La Guarimba is a cultural organisation situated in the southern Italian region of Calabria that uses culture as a vehicle to promote values of participatory democracy, integration and accessibility. Our main goal is to bring the cinema back to the people and the people back to the cinema.

Founded by Calabro-Venezuelan Giulio Vita (1988) and street artist and illustrator Sara Fratini (1985).

Guarimba, in the venezuelan indigenous language, means “safe place”.
