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, human rights, and accessibility. Our main goal is to bring the cinema back to the people and the people back to the cinema.

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

In the last years, we received the Representation Medal from the President of the Italian Republic Sergio Mattarella, the High Patronage of the European Parliament, the Patronage of the Presidency of the Italian Council of Ministers and the Patronage of the Chamber of Deputies.
