The deadline to submit a film to the 2018 Geocaching International Film Festival is August 1st, 2018!
If you’re a GIFF filmmaker, it’s time to put the finishing touches on your film reel, double-check the contest rules, upload your film to Vimeo, and fill out the GIFF submission form. Then, sit back, relax, and plan your next geocaching adventure.
All eligible film submissions will be judged by a Geocaching HQ panel of judges who will choose approximately 16 finalist films, based on the criteria below. The 16 finalist films will be shared outside of Geocaching HQ with selected geocaching Community Volunteers from around the world. The Community Volunteers will view the finalist films and choose an overall winner (the Signal Award). The Geocaching HQ judges and the geocaching Community Volunteer judges will judge all submissions based on the following criteria:
- Production quality
- Contribution to the global geocaching community
All judging will be completed by August 31, 2018. Filmmakers will be notified via email about the results of the competition in early September.
The 16 (or so) finalist films will be aired at worldwide GIFF Events November 8, 2018 to November 12, 2018.
