The Geocaching International Film Festival returns to celebrate 10 years of epic geocaching moments captured on camera.

If you’re a filmmaker, a geocacher, or something in between, GIFF 2023 is your chance to have your geocaching film viewed by thousands of people all over the world. Start creating your film now! The submission form will open June 1, 2023.



Part 1: Film submission & judging
Geocachers around the world—like you—create short films about geocaching and submit them to Geocaching HQ for judging. Films must be submitted by August 3, 2023. During the month of August, the films are reviewed by judges from Geocaching HQ. In September, finalist films are announced and the filmmakers are notified.

Part 2: Finalist films shown at Geocaching Events
After announcing the finalists, Geocaching HQ creates a film reel with the finalist films. Any geocacher can host a geocaching Event to show the finalist films during the official Film Festival dates: November 9 – November 19, 2023. Stay tuned for more information about hosting your GIFF Event!

Last GIFF, over 16,000 geocachers attended 425 Events hosted across 40 countries!
