Howdy.

We’re the BearCity Family.

In 2010 we made the touching and hilarious romcom BearCity, which captured the hearts of the independent film community with "An honest depiction of a rarely presented subculture filled with humor, heart and hair."- 2010 OutFest Grand Jury

So many of you wrote to us, confided in us – talked to us about the story, the characters... and still do today! With so much love rollin’ in, we made BearCity 2: The Proposal. It’s even faster, funnier and, if it's even possible, mo’ heartfelt!

You haven't see them yet?!? Don't worry... We are streaming them FREE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE!!!

At every turn, one of you asks,

Listen up, Ursine Creatures!!! The answer is...

We have a great script for the 3rd and final installment.  Bear nekked camping, a baby on the way and of course, hot Bears. We're pulling out all the stops but we can't do it without YOU!

So this is how it works: if we’re able to raise at least $250,000 in the next 30 days, we’ll be able to get to work on a barebones version of BearCity 3 this summer. But $250,000 is the bare minimum we need to get into production.

However, we wanna go out with a bang ! We've got a big bear adventure in this script, and if we’re able to raise enough money, you’ll get to see all of it. The more we raise, the more we can put in the movie... including you... Michael on an ATV and a freakin' REAL LIVE BEAR!!!


You've asked for it, Doug wrote it... now... LET'S DO THIS!
