What is GIFF Weekend?
GIFF Weekend is your chance to watch the entire reel of the 16 finalist films from the 2015 Geocaching International Film Festival. On the weekend of November 5-8 only, geocachers will host geocaching events at which these films will be shown publicly for the first time. So pop your popcorn, get out your coziest blankets, and get ready—it’s a global geocaching movie night!

How can I host a GIFF Weekend event of my own?

  1. Make sure you have all the equipment necessary to screen the movies (computer, projector, screen, etc.).
  2. Create an Event Cache on Geocaching.com for November 5, 6, 7, or 8 and wait for it to be published by a Geocaching Reviewer.
  3. Once the event is published, fill out this GIFF Weekend Sign Up form. If Geocaching HQ determines your event meets the requirements for GIFF Weekend, you will be provided with the file containing the GIFF 2015 film reel and your event will be added to HQ’s bookmark list of GIFF Weekend Events. If your event is not approved by Geocaching HQ, you will be notified. We recommend you then notify your guests that you will not be showing the GIFF 2015 films.
