As if the Internet Cat Video Festival weren't bad enough, the unrelenting hunger for everything bacon-related has unleashed the Bacon Film Festival set for Oct. 17 in New York.
Don't expect a whole week of paens to all things porky, though -- it's just one night comprised of 11 shorts all revolving around the world of smoky meat, such as "Baquon" (pictured).
"Chopped" judge and chef Chris Santos, who sports a bacon tattoo, and MTV News film correspondent Joshua Horowitz are hosting the festival, which takes place at Gotham's Sunshine Cinema and includes a prize of $11,000 -- enough for about 2000 packages of bacon.
Several of the films can also be viewed via the Bacon Party Youtube channel.
