Calling all filmmakers! Submit your film to GIFF 2018

The Geocaching International Film Festival is returning for another year of epic geocaching moments captured on camera.

If you’re a filmmaker, a geocacher, or something in between, GIFF 2018 is your chance to have your geocaching film viewed by thousands of people on movie screens all over the world. Submissions are now open!

How the festival works

Films are submitted to Geocaching HQ by August 1, 2018. Throughout August, the films will go through various rounds of viewing by a panel of judges from Geocaching HQ. In September the finalist films will be announced. The filmmakers will be notified, and the film titles made public. Geocachers who are hosting GIFF events will receive a single film reel compilation of all the finalists. From November 8-12, 2018, the GIFF film reel will be shown at GIFF events hosted by geocachers all over the world. In 2017, there were 601 Events hosted in 55 countries, and 16,497 geocachers attended.
