DIRECTOR: Eric Risher

In Furries, local filmmaker Eric Risher takes a trip to a convention in downtown Pittsburgh where thousands gather, wearing tails, hats with ears, and full-body animal costumes. They are furries: members of a growing subculture who share an appreciation for anthropomorphic animal characters. Frequently defined by the mainstream media as a purely sexual community, they must struggle against public misconceptions as they explore and develop their lives as furries. This film offers a humanizing perspective on an often misunderstood community. Look beyond the fur to discover the importance of identity and creativity, and the true essence of the furry fandom: its people.
