SPLITTING HAIRS Splits Sides

Cool kids had two options last night: Karaoke at Quarry House or Beard and Moustache Competition at Round House.  It was possible to hit both, press teamsters in their 20s tell me.  As for those with only one late night entry in them (read: like me), they stuck to the resplendent SPLITTING HAIRS post screening contest, which had about 20 competitors–professional and amateurs–with a suprise upset win by HUNTING DOWN MEMORY film subject Øyvind Aamot, who beat Bill Mitchell, third place World Beard and Moustache Champion.  Bill’s extraordinary sideburn Mutton Chops couldn’t bear up under the weight of the long flowing dreadlocked partial.  SPLITTING HAIRS subject and Team USA leader Phil Olsen deserves a medal for bringing out so many Team USA members from around the country and serving as MC. First Place winners took home Festival passes to next year’s SILVERDOCS and a few other goodies.  Some photos:
