Your vision of geocaching cannot be contained by a simple Facebook photo, Tweet or even a mighty blog post. Nay, we say, your vision deserves much more. You need to tell your geocaching story through the majesty of a short video. Ready your geocaching muse. The Geocaching International Film Festival (GIFF) wants your vision of the adventure of geocaching to take flight in video on the big screen this summer in Seattle. It all happens the night before the Geocaching Block Party, which you should also attend.

Enter your four minute video in any family-friendly genre: narrative, documentary, music video, animation, experimental, etc… Hurry up, the deadline for submissions is July 1, 2014. To show you what it takes, and to enter, we have just what you need: A short film.

    Is there a link to this year’s official rules?

    It’s a great pity that you have to be present for getting the opportunity to get an award. I’m sure that many geocachers outside the USA or outside Seattle can make a great 4 minute movie and send it in, but don’t have the possibility to be present. Therefore many geocaching filmmakers will be left out the competition. ;-)

    The rules say you don’t need to be present to win.

    I submit a film a few weeks ago but I didn’t get any confirmation by mail. Is it normal ? How can I check that the submission is registrated ? Thank you.

  • Reidsomething

    Hey Franky! Sorry for the radio silence there.

    There is no confirmation email, just a message after you finish submitting that looks like the attached image. I’m guessing yours is the submission, “FTF with ibex in the beautifull Vercors” Yes?

    Is there any kind of specs for the format of the films (ie: size/dimensions, aspect ration (4:3, 16:9, anamorphic, etc)? Thanks!!!

  • franky84

    Hello, Thank you for your answer.
    Yes it’s this film. I really wondered why I had no news, I wanted to submit another one, I didn’t so I will submit it next year.
    Thank you
