As far as I can tell, that is not something that can be done at this time. :(
As quoted from Lindsey Batdorf, the creator of it:
"Unfortunately, I can't put the movie in its entirety on the Internet for viewing because of film festival restrictions."
Kinda sucks.

Mild-mannered illustrator Ryan Wetherby channels his childhood with his obsession of 'furry,' a nerdy subculture where people geek over cartoon animals.

since when it's nerdy to be a furry ?

"Nerdy" meaning anything involving sitting at home and participating in a "fantasy life", I'm assuming

And after all, we do exist today because of the sci-fi culture

Who really cares if the fandom is considered "nerdy" by some? Some of the greatest people such as Sir. Isaac Newton, Galileo Galilei, Michael Faraday, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein were probably considered nerds or geeks at some point in their lives because they had different interests to the average person. Thanks to these people's intellect, we now see the world very differently. I personally think someone's perception of a "Nerd" boils down to the individual. For example, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond's love of Cars seems "Nerdy" and strange to me because I personally find them boring.

What exactly makes anybody's interest in Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Science or even Anthropomorphic animals any more "Nerdy" than somebody's interest in Sport, Cars or whatever? We all have different interests and I don't see any need to label anybody else's interests/hobbies as "Nerdy" because I do not understand them. Nor do I care if anybody decides to call my interests "Nerdy".

I see being a furry more of a hobby than a life style. The movie kind of makes it like that the guy is a furry and he just HAS to have the suit and pictures all over his house. Maybe I'm not really into the fandom then, or maybe other people are just too much into it.

Keep it on topic, guys. A lot of these replies are stemming into topics that aren't relevant to the movie or the OP itself.

This. Although I like the idea that people are talking about the movie and the ideas that were put into it - negative or otherwise - it's not something that should diffuse into another topic of which there's an existing thread.

Anyway, just to resolve this opinion-based conflict thing, here's a quote from another thread that pretty much explains it.

Technically furries are nerds. Except we get laid more. So s'good as long as they're furry.

I'm not sure. There haven't been to many good movies recently, producers are getting pretty desperate. Anyway this is a situation I've thought about, getting a girlfriend who has no idea about the furry fandom. looks interesting   :lol-fox:   
"When you enjoy something, you must never let logic get too much in the way. Like the villains in all the James Bond movies. Whenever Bond breaks into the complex: 'Ah, Mr. Bond, welcome, come in. Let me show you my entire evil plan and then put you in a death machine that doesn't work'."

Hey guys, thought I would bring some news I just heard. Supposedly the director got so many requests to post the full thing online, that she managed to reason with the film festival boss person and is allowed to post it online. :lol-fox:

From what I know, it should be going up on Vimeo, but will probably make its way to YouTube too. I wasn't able to find a date that it will be on there, but keep looking and it will be up eventually. Here's her account, and most likely the one it will be posted on.

Idk...I'm feeling a bit nervous about this movie. None of us need more bad publicity...
Though, yes, I am going to watch it. But...I'm not sure how I feel about the idea...

What bad publicity? People thought we were sex-crazed lunatic nerds LONG before any of the TV stuff....just like people thought Trekkies were sad even before that dude decked out his lounge to look like the bridge of the Enterprise.

Still, while you have a point, more negtivity only leads to more pain, imo. I just dont want to see any of my friends hurt over something as trivial as a movie. So, i'm just hoping it'll be an at least somewhat positive movie.
