RULES OF THE GAME
-All participants must go through a selection process that involves filling out a form and an interview with our team.
-Selected participants must arrive in Amantea on the 10th of June between 09:00 and 18:00.
-All shorts must have at least one outdoors shot in Amantea.
-The film must be shot in the town of Amantea.
-The maximum length of the film is 10 minutes. You are totally free to continue working on the personal project, after the Residency.
-All finished films must be handed in by 16:00 on the 21st with English and Italian subtitles.
-The apartments are available for the nights from the 10th to the 21st of June (included). You need to leave your room before 11am on the 22nd.
-If you break it, you pay it. As in real life, you are responsible for your own actions.
-Office hours are sacred. Our team has the right to rest.
-Do your recycling. Take out the garbage bins every night.
-La Guarimba is a community of adults, not a summer camp. If you have a problem with somebody, talk to them. If you can’t solve the problem, come to us.
-Don’t commit to a project before you have arrived in Amantea. The script might sound amazing and the person too but wait until you meet everybody and get inspired by Calabria!
-Do not monopolize the equipment nor the organisational team. We are here to help and will try our best to satisfy your film needs, but we are not your production assistants. Remember: locals want to help you as well. Invest more time on building relationships, than demanding.
-Adapt and learn, don’t modify and impose. This is a growing experience. Amantea has a lot to offer to your personal trip. Don’t focus on what makes you uncomfortable about the locals but try to see what you can learn from them and their way to life.
All applications must be submitted online by 30th of April.
Your confirmation should happen before 10th of May.
In the event of a withdrawal of the participant who has already paid the registration fee, the organization can make a partial refund of € 150. The refund can only be made if the withdrawal is communicated within 30 days before the start of the residence and is caused by a valid reason.
There are 50 available spaces for participants which will be determined by a selection process based on portfolio, enthusiasm and willingness to discover.
Our main goal is to create a multi-cultural film community with professionals, students and film enthusiasts. A community capable of engaging with the local population regardless of the language barrier. We use cinema as a tool to create an open society.
