Coming to a cinema near you…

This week is a joyous one. Not only is the sun out and warming the backs of our necks, it’s been announced that our screens are about to get a whole lot hairier, and that can only be good.

Beardo The Movie

“Beardo: The Movie” is a documentary that follows the participants of the World Moustache and Beard Championships, where men from across the world compete to be crowned owner of the best facial hair in the world. This fascinating event is brought to life with interviews with bearded fellows, showcasing their pride and fierce rivalry.

Due to overwhelming production costs, distribution wasn’t possible, but thanks to the kind people of Kickstarter, the film’s producer has more than met the $2,000 goal, receiving over $4,600 in donations. The film will now go through the necessary processes to get it distributed through such channels as iTunes, Hulu and Netflix.

If all goes well, we might be able to experience the hairy joy of the World Moustache and Beard Championships before the year is out. Slumber party viewing, stat.

Have a gander of the trailer and try not to get too excited.
