La Guarimba is a film festival and 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.

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, from 7th to 12th August, and CinemAmbulante, a film residency in June.

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