Geocaching International Film Festival (GC51KH2)

With every new incredible geocache container, every clever hide, every log that reads like an epic journey, it becomes apparent: the geocaching community is one of the most creative groups of people on the planet. At this year's Geocaching Block Party, we’re going to showcase that creativity with the second annual Geocaching International Film Festival.

The GIFF will be held the evening before the Geocaching Block Party from 8pm–10pm on August 15, 2014 in Gas Works Park, Seattle.

  • Finalists will be selected and shown on a giant 40’ screen
