From finding new favorite places, people, and puzzles, geocaching is full of moments that should be captured on film and shared with the geocaching world. See how the international geocaching community has captured these geocaching moments by attending this 2019 GIFF Event.
From November 7-17, 2019, thousands of geocachers will take part in a global geocaching movie event. The GIFF 2019 reel will contain an hour of carefully selected finalist films made by geocachers, for geocachers.
For the fourth year in row, I've reserved a screen at the Warner Movie Theater in Ridgewood, NJ, for geocachers to enjoy these films. Enjoy comfortable seating with your friends and fellow geocachers. Earn a souvenir for your geocaching profile! Vote for your favorite film after you've seen them all!
A couple cool items to note about this event:
- The movie theater concession stand will be open for you to purchase your favorite movie theater snack! Of course, purchasing snacks is optional for this event.
- As noted above, attending a GIFF event will earn you a souvenir for your profile.
The theater holds 180 people maximum, so arrive early! The theater we will be using is upstairs, which is why this is not a T1 event.
The event will take place Saturday, November 9th, from 10am to 12pm, and the schedule will be as follows:
- 10am: theater opens
- 10:20am: introduction of the GIFF event
- 10:30am - 11:00am: enjoy the first half of the official 2019 GIFF film reel
- 11:00am - 11:10: group photo
- 11:10am - 11:40am: enjoy the second half of the official 2019 GIFF film reel
- 11:40am - 12pm: vote for your favorite film and discuss them with fellow geocachers!
Attendance is free, though to help defray the cost of the theater rental, a suggested donation of $5 per attendee is appreciated.
The theater is located at 190 E Ridgewood Ave, Ridgewood, NJ 07450. Parking in Ridgewood is notoriously difficult so make sure to leave time to find a parking space!
The theater is within walking distance of the Ridgewood Train Station and Bus Station, if mass transit is how you will be arriving.
When logging a Will Attend, please note how many will be in attendance.
