A standalone festival uniting filmmakers and film-goers in the Furry community
The Furry Film Festival (F3) is the very first festival of its type to come to the international furry community. While some small film festival events have been featured at furry conventions in the past, this event is a completely standalone festival, dedicated entirely to furry movies and filmmaking.
It ‘s a multi-day celebration held in Salt Lake City, Utah, where, in addition to screenings, there will be awards, social events, networking opportunities, and more. While everybody is invited to joins us for the live event and screening, you can be anywhere in the world to submit a film!
The event is open to anybody in or around the furry community, and there are very few rules about what type of film you can make! To see a list of rules and requirements, please visit the rules and FAQ page.
Submitting a film
F3 is now open for submissions, and furry filmmakers have until September 25th, 2019 to submit their films to the festival.
Assemble your cast and crew!
You don’t have to do it alone (although, that is perfectly fine)! You’d be surprised how many talented folks are in the furry community. We encourage all furries with big ideas to start networking and assembling a crew. If you’re good at one thing (like writing, or editing) you may find other furries local to you who are good at filming, or music, or something else! They don’t even have to be local… perhaps you can film your movie in Germany, and have it edited in America by a friend? It’s all up to you!
Find your genre
Is your film going to be a drama, adventure, or horror? Is it going to be a documentary or fiction? Is it going to be animation or full motion video? You decide! As long as it fits under the 10-minute time limit, we accept almost any type of short film!
Incorporate the theme!
The reason why F3 has a theme is to encourage collaboration, and ensure furries are making unique films that will be premiered at the F3 Festival. We will not accept any entries that have been screened at any other event, venue or online platform prior. This year’s theme is “The Future”. Incorporate it any way you’d like, it doesn’t have to be literal.
Submit your film!
We will accept a wide variety of digital formats. Just make sure it’s no longer than 10 minutes in length! It costs only $25 to submit your film to the festival, and this money goes towards all the preparation and logistics of getting your films judged and potentially featured on the website with a dedicated page, an official screening at the premiere event and awards.
Official short film series
To help drive and inspire furry filmmakers within the community, the F3 event organizers and local furs from the Utah Furry Community have been putting together a short film series which will launch episodically throughout the F3 entry period.
