Event Summary

On Saturday 9th November, at Bishop Grosseteste University, there will be a screening of the finalists in this year's Geocaching International Film Festival (GIFF), at 1.30pm.

Geocaching is a world wide GPS-based treasure hunt, with players hiding 'caches' for others to find, sometimes involving puzzles and tasks to determine the final location of the geocache itself. There are over 3 million geocaches hidden worldwide, and many thousands here in Lincolnshire.

The GIFF is an opportunity for geocachers from all over the world to make short films about their adventures. The sixteen finalists have had their submissions incorporated into a film reel and hundreds of screenings have been scheduled over the weekend of 8th-11th November.

This is the 5th consecutive year that there has been a GIFF event here in Lincoln, and the third that it has been held at Bishop Grosseteste University.

Organiser Andy Wright said. 'The Geocaching International Film Festival is increasingly popular with local geocachers. Every year has seen more and more attendees of all ages, including those who have never played the game before.'

The event starts at 1.30pm in the Robert Hardy building. There will also be a raffle to cover costs and sales of geocaching related merchandise.

Price: £2/£1
