Every year we build a team of volunteers who bring the cinema back to the people and the people back to the cinema. First of all, take your time to see how the festival was created and who we are (feel free to share the video among your friends):


What we offer:

-A place to sleep from 5th to 13th

-Food during the days of the festival

-An official t-shirt

-A badge

-A tote bag

-An amazing cinema-lover monkeys experience in the south of Italy.

-If you have a car, we will pay for your gas.

We are looking for people who:

-Speaks basic english or basic italian

-Want to learn and develop their interests and teach their own talent

-Exhibit flexibility

-Treat others in a respectful and supportive manner

-Want to build a community

What will you do:

In the morning you are going to hand out flyers at the beach to entice people to come to the festival. It is a very important way to approach people, make them know about the festival and try to get them come. We know that in those days there will be many tourists, so the more people know the festival, the more people will be able to reach us. After you have done this, you will be free to stay at the beach or do what you like. Lunch is always organized, so you can go home.

We will put you in a team from one of our many areas. Usually the work begins at 18 but, since there are so many things to do, you may be required to start earlier. In any case from the beginning of the work we should all be in La Grotta until the end of the activities. Also the dinner will be organized, so that we can eat before the screenings starts.

Where are you staying:

You will stay in a rented house sharing room with other volunteers. The fridge will be already filled by Guarimba with everything you may need. In this house is not allowed to have parties nor invite people who are not from the staff. We build a community where we have to collaborate together cooking, cleaning and respecting the spaces.


They are an essential part of the festival. They are coming here to hard work and have a very beautiful experience knowing people from all over the world and building a community with them. They are not coming to party but they have fun, they are not on vacation but they manage to go to the beach.


My boyfriend/girlfriend wants to come. Can he/she stay with me in the volunteer house?

Nop. The idea of having sharing rooms with people you don’t know is to build a community those days. We want you to share with others and don’t be distracted by your life. If your friends want to come, they are more than welcome to rent a place and attend the festival.

I want to go but I can’t help every day.

So, this is not the place for you. We are looking for people who wants to live a complete experience.

I have a friend in Amantea and I would rather stay at his/her place. Can I?

Of course but remember to be on time and participate in all the activities we have planned for you.

I want to bring food from my hometown

We encourage cultural exchange so if you want to bring things from your hometown to share with others, you are more than welcome.

I am looking for an internship

During the year, we accept interns to help us out in different tasks such as translation of the website, design and communication for social media, press office and more. Find out more here: http://www.laguarimba.com/internships/
