WHAT IS THE GEOCACHING INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL (GIFF)?

Part 1: Film Submission & Judging
Geocachers around the world – like you – create short films about geocaching and submit them to Geocaching HQ for judging. Films must be submitted by August 1, 2019. During the month of August, the films are reviewed by judges from Geocaching HQ. In September, finalist films are announced and the filmmakers are notified.

Part 2: Finalist films shown at Geocaching Events
After announcing the finalists, Geocaching HQ creates a film reel with the finalist films. Any geocacher can host a geocaching Event to show the finalist films during the official Film Festival dates: November 7 – November 17, 2019.
