    I wouldn’t say AlboGIFF Spanish event is extravagant at all!! Watching all these films projected in such cinema will be amazing!! They also have worked hard for this, completing the town map with lots of movie-related caches (even a geoart!). They are farther than incredible! And this event will be the source of much talk!!!

    🙁 I was quite disapointed with the 17 finalist of this year. At 2016 GIFF almost all of the movies were fun. This year probably only 5 of 17, had that enjoy Quality mark.

    This was my first GIFF viewing. So I hosted an event for it, so it would be close to home. Actually had a couple from Pennsylvania attend (the were in the area for a family wedding). I thought we had a great turn out and I enjoyed myself! My favorite was the Aussie “Geocaching is free”. Reminds me of a joke I heard about 15 years ago.

    GIFF #3 2017 GC7D0XM. 3th time hosting and our best year, 51 Attendees.
    Unofficially, We may have been in the Top 10, if not the top 5 in attendance in the USA.
    Yes, I clicked on all GIFF’s listed on the map. Note-able sites in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Seattle and California. I thinks most liked “Geocaching is Free” and “A Travel Bug’s Life”. I know, it’s not able the numbers. Just to have fun.
