It's about time someone put on a film festival about bacon. The team at Hormel's Black Label bacon have heeded the call. The company's first International Bacon Film Festival features 11 short films inspired the porky strips. Festivities take place Oct. 17 in New York City.
There's a lot on the line: the winning entry takes home $11,000. Victors will be chosen by the festival's judges, "Chopped" judge Chris Santos and “MTV News” film correspondent Joshua Horowitz.
