A followup to yesterday’s story: ‘Fursonas’ beats Zootopia as most important furry movie, coming on Video On Demand.
“Most important?” What’s with the sensational title?
Not the biggest or most widely appealing. Just one that stands apart.
There’s never been a furry-made feature film that got support from the movie industry, until now. Not just support, but pole position to open Slamdance, one of the most significant film festivals. It got an award for representing the spirit of the festival. Then it sold immediately to a mainstream distributor with Hollywood press, while tons of larger movies sit on the shelf.
That’s the biggest thing that’s ever happened in fandom-made media.
Disney’s non-fanmade “furry” movie is getting all the attention, while a by-and-for-fans movie is getting what any furry moviemaker dreams of. It’s a good reason for an article about what’s going on with the Year of Furry movies.
It was surprising that nobody talked about the Slamdance win when it happened… so here’s a little nudge to notice. The best part of the hype is it’s not just a furry movie, it’s a legit movie.
More news to come! Dogpatch Press will be on the story.
Director Dominic Rodriguez said that five furries attended the two screenings of his movie at Slamdance, with two in suit. Slamdance released a video as part of their Spotlight Series of a short interview with him, the producer, and Boomer The Dog.
