The Trilogy

Awards Awards Awards AwardsAwardsAwards Awards Awards Awards

In 2010 BearCity took the film festival circuit by storm and caught the independent film community heart by depicting a group of characters affectionately known as “The Bears” in the gay community.

In 2012 the BearCity gang returned to the screen with some new members. Kathy Najimy, Richard Riehle and Kevin Smith join our returning cast of bears, boys and cubs, for a Bear Week bachelor party in Provincetown!

Join us in 2016 as we take one final adventure into the woods with the BearCity gang, where romance can sometimes be hairy but ultimately worth every hilarious, sometimes painful and all-consuming moment.

BearCity follows a tight-knit pack of friends experiencing comical mishaps, emotionally sweet yet lusty romantic encounters and a cast of colorful, diverse characters as they gear up for a big party weekend. Closet cub Tyler fantasizes about stuffing Santa’s stocking and finding a Daddy bear to do more than cuddle. But as he dives into the bear community, he finds that it can be hard for a hairless guy to get some fuzzy loving. Add to that some adorable eye-candy, beer busts and a maybe-not-so-monogamous bear couple for roommates, and BearCity makes for a beartastic summertime romp.

Kathy Najimy plays den mother to the returning cast of bears, boys and cubs, for a Bear Week bachelor party in Provincetown! Take a trip down the aisle with Roger and Tyler to one of the most magical beach towns on earth in this romantic comedy for all.

Kevin Smith, Lt. Dan Choi, Frank DiCaro, Mike Ruiz and Varla Jean Merman, lend their support to our lovable gang as they navigate through a foam party, ex‐boyfriends and 6,000 sexy men.

Meanwhile, Richard Riehle (Bridesmaids) as father of the groom, learns a whole new meaning to the word "Daddy!" BearCity 2: The Proposal, is a romp full of fur, fun and family as the bears realize that marriage is much more than just the freedom to say "I do."

Out of Hibernation This Summer

In 2008 filmmaker Doug Langway had a brilliant idea: write what you know. Having been an integral part of the New York City gay community, Doug decided to showcase his fondness for those we call “bears”, or large, hairy men. He was able to capture what it was like to “come out twice.” First you come out as gay, then you come out for loving big, hairy men. Beyond the subcultural references and inside jokes, BearCity really came to life as a human story. It’s a film about a group of friends who love, live, and breathe just the same as everyone else. Through comedy and romance, Doug was able to make a place for the “bears” on the screen, and in our hearts.

With a script in place, and support from a team of brilliant, kind-hearted, producers/investors/friends, Doug assembled a handsome, charming, and genuine cast to complete his vision. BearCity became the first bear-focused feature film, and before we could build a wall big enough to contain its beauty, BearCity roared forth to global acclaim!

Emails, letters, GROWLr Shouts, Tweets, and Facebook messages poured in. People related to these characters, and they wanted more! They were involved in the intricacies of their lives. And they LOVE our beautiful, talented actors. They felt like they were seeing their own lives, and their own friends, represented on film. Because bears, otters, silver foxes, cubs, pups, chubs, and chasers were so hungry for their tales to be told, BearCity 2: The Proposal soon lept out of the fuzzy cave.

Everywhere we go – the question… When? When will we be able to share in the lives of the BearCity gang again? And the answer is “Now!”

Doug managed, once again, to capture the beautiful and complex emotions that we all face in our pursuit of happiness. BearCity 3 is a wonderful send off to this moving and hilarious trilogy.

The MOST important part of our story now is ... YOU. THANK YOU for getting involved. Through 5 (yes, five) Indiegogo campaigns we were able to raise the budget and, in 4 years, take the film from concept to screen. Now it is time to celebrate...

Come join Doug, our cast, and our amazing bear community for the epic ending of the stories that have touched people's heart, brought some back from the edge and made people double over laughing until their side hurt.
