TQFF Presents: Hot & Bothered, Screening and Q&A
June 17, 7pm EST
Join us on June 17th for an online screening of Hot & Bothered!
Hot & Bothered is a fast-paced satirical comedy that follows the lives of two sarcastic stoner twenty year olds who get in over their heads when they create the “Grindr” for lesbians.
The screening will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. EST and a Q&A with series creator Leah Byrd will follow.
About the filmmaker:
Leah Byrd was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. They grew up spending 13 years in Catholic school in a small Midwestern city leaving very little room for queer spaces within their childhood. Discovering all of the queer content available online was a real game changer on Byrd’s path towards self-acceptance. This has driven a strong passion within Leah to create diverse characters within their own media. Leah knows first hand what representation can do to one’s mental health and the incredible power that media can have on opening minds.
Leah Byrd has a BFA in Motion Picture Production from Wright State University.
