Fest Organizers in Person!

The Nightingale is delighted to host the kindred souls of La Guarimba International Film Festival, a socio-cultural project in Amantea, a small town in the south of Italy. The festival was created by a group of artists from different cities all over the world who believe in the benefit of working together for others. In 2013, they cleaned and reopened the Arena Sicoli, an old outdoor movie theater with 900 seats, to show the official selections. La Guarimba International Film Festival was born to bring the cinema to the people and the people to the cinema, with the aim of giving back the magic of the cinematography to the town’s inhabitants, to spread the work of local and international filmmakers and also to foster the culture of Calabria.
