Since my last update The Furry Film Festival has made great strides in becoming a reality, with 5 (as of this posting) judges announced and a sample of one of the films on YouTube. Even a sample film which in my opinion looks amazing.
The current list of Judges include
Freddie Wong, Jib Kodi, Jessie Cox, Majira Strawberry, and the latest Ash Coyote most of whom have a strong presence on YouTube.
