AMI New England Bureau chief Dr. Lou Jacobs has agreed to host No Umbrella Media’s 2012 International Moustache Film Festival, the world’s first known film festival dedicated to the sexually dynamic Mustached American lifestyle.

The festival will be be held immediately before the fifth annual Stache Pag on March 30, 2012 and the film selection committee must receive all film submissions by March 24, 2012. This festival is open to film makers the world over. The finalists will have their 8 minute or less films shown and judged at the festival. The winner will be chosen and awarded a cash prize.

“This is an important moment in moustache history,” says Dr. Jacobs. “Never has there been a film festival dedicated to the unique art of filming the mustached male (or female). The American Mustache Institute would like to congratulate the IMFF for it’s efforts to preserve the mustached arts.”

Film categories include: Best Foreign Moustache Film, Best Growth Story, Best Collection of Moustaches in One Film and Best Fake Moustache Movie.  The beneficiaries of the festival and 5th Annual Stache Pag will be Northeast Historic Film, MENSK and Mystache Fights Cancer.
