Geocaching International Film Festival Event 2015 (Newtownards, Co. Down)
This event is being held to showcase the exploits of this years 16 finalists of the Geocaching International Film Festival.
Come along and be amongst the first geocachers in Ireland to see the 16 finalist films from the 2015 Geocaching International Film Festival. In the past you could only see these films if you went to the event held every year in Seattle at the Block Party. This year, the Film Festival was rained out. So, on the weekend of 5-8 November only, geocachers all over the world will host geocaching events at which the films from the 2015 Geocaching International Film Festival will be shown publicly for the first time. The film runs for approximately 60 minutes and IS suitable for children.
While you're here, you can also meet new friends and catch up with old ones, discover and exchange travelbugs and pick up a hint or two you need to turn that DNF into a smiley.
