Maine to host first-ever Mustache Film Festival

The Associated Press

PORTLAND — The organizers of what's billed as New England's largest mustache pageant are now launching the world's first known mustache film festival.

No Umbrella Media says its International Mustache Film Festival will be held immediately before the fifth annual mustache pageant, known as the Stache Pag, on March 30 in Portland.

The festival is taking film submissions in categories such as best foreign mustache film, best fake mustache movie and best collection of mustaches in one film. The finalists will have their 8-minute or shorter films shown and judged at the festival.

For the mustache pageant, contestants show off their whiskers on stage for a panel of judges.

Proceeds benefit the nonprofit arts group MENSK, Northeast Historic Film and Mutache Fights Cancer.
