Festival Overview

La Guarimba is a film festival in Amantea, a small beach town in the southern region of Calabria where all the cinemas were closed. We are a group of italians, spanish and venezuelans that repaired an old outdoor movie theatre to bring the cinema back to the people and the people back to the cinema.

Every summer we screen short films from all over the world at La Grotta, a natural park in our town.

During the day, the festival assistants (directors, illustrators, cinema lovers) goes to the beach, eat all together amazing italian food and have great wine.
