Schedule La Guarimba International Film Festival 2019 Summer

THE YEAR OF MATURITY

The little film festival, born of a chat between four twenty-year-olds in a bar in Madrid and organized in Nonna Saveria’s town, has just reached its seventh edition. This year we’re back all grown up and full of new exciting changes while staying true to our identity and our aim of bringing the cinema back to the people and the people back to the cinema.

We managed to create a Media Partnership with Rai 4 and Rai Cinema, national broadcaster, and with LaC News at a regional level; to count on the support of the United States Embassy, the Hungarian Embassy, the German Embassy and the Canadian Embassy; to secure national and international sponsors such as MINI Italia, G-Technology and Klean Kanteen; to confirm local sponsorships which year after year invest in our project, helping us to give value to our land, for example the companies Fichi Marano, Grafiche Calabria and Conad Campora San Giovanni; to gain the support of the Calabrian Region and the Italian Ministry of Culture.

With the help of our local and regional partners, we aim to create a net able to be an integral part of the social fabric of our land. Moreover, this year we’ve become members of the Short Film Conference, an organization that promotes short films.

The CAMBUR Project has not only allowed us to get rid of single use plastic but it has also proven to be financially viable. As a matter of fact, this year, many companies are giving us a hand in our attempt of reducing our negative environmental impact. One of these is Parley, who will support us in cleaning the beach in Amantea with the help of locals and guests.

The official selection includes 163 short films divided in the following competition categories: Fiction, Documentary, Animation, Music Video, Experimental, La Grotta dei Piccoli (in collaboration with UNICEF Italia); and the non-competitive selections: Karmala, Americania and MigrArti.
The countries represented this year are 44, from all the continents, and they offer the spectator a mosaic of points of view, critiques, realities, obsessions and anxieties created by new voices or established artists.

Our program is enriched by conferences of relevance for the film industry which are also a great opportunity for the public to get a taste of this world through the direct experience of international experts in the sector.

The festival’s musical program will kick off, like every year, with the local Orchestra di Fiati Mediterranea Città di Amantea followed by the concert of the Calabrian artist N.A.I.P. in collaboration with Color Fest and it will end with afro pop beats by Abass Ndiaye, Senegalese musician, who will be playing for the first time in Italy thanks to the collaboration with Karmala Cultura.

Enjoy the festival, Guarimberos!

Can we bring our children?

The festival doesn’t know the censorship but, after 23:00, some projections can hurt the sensibility of some people. That’s why we created “La Grotta dei Piccoli”, a space dedicated to children that will consist of animation movies projections during all the evenings of the festival.
