Starting a conversation with someone you don’t know can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be. Just remember, most people at geocaching events are expecting to meet new people! In case you need a little more encouragement to strike up conversation, here are a few tips you can try out at the next geocaching event that will spark some interesting and enjoyable conversations!

This past November, almost 18,000 geocachers attended Geocaching International Film Festival events. From movie theater seats and living-room couches, geocachers all around the world celebrated the 16 GIFF finalist films. We laughed a lot, sniffled a little, and remembered what we love about geocaching.
This year we’re excited to share a very special video created by geocacher and previous GIFF finalist, Geoelmo6000. He gathered and edited footage from this year’s film finalists and GIFF events to create this exclusive recap. Watch the film now:

The smell of popcorn in the air, gnomes dancing everywhere… it can only mean one thing: It’s time for the 2018 Geocaching International Film Festival!
From November 8-12, the 16 never-before-seen GIFF finalist films will make their international debuts on hundreds of screens all over the world. Some GIFF Events will be themed—like this intergalactic GIFF gathering in Adelaide, Australia. Some events will be extravagant—like the first-ever GIFF themed Mega Event – GIFF 2018 – Janz jroß Kinema. All GIFF events will show this year’s hilarious, dramatic, and poignant geocaching films. And if you need one more reason to love GIFF: attending any official GIFF event will earn you the GIFF 2018 souvenir, plus you’ll earn 15 points towards your Social Butterfly souvenir!
