LGBTQ Gen Z Road Trip Comedy EGGHEAD & TWINKIE Treks to the UK for International Premiere

CanBeDone Films and Orange Cat Films are proud to present 
Egghead & Twinkie, writer/director Sarah Kambe Holland's deeply personal coming-of-age comedy about the joys and pains of coming out of the closet. Egghead & Twinkie debuts 16 March at BFI Flare: London LGBTQIA+ Film Festival.

Made by and for Gen Z, Egghead & Twinkie stars Sabrina Jie-A-Fa as the titular Twinkie (The Corrupt Half) and Louis Tomeo as Egghead (Every Witch Way, 9-1-1), with a strong supporting cast including Asahi Hirano (Saintly, Save Me a Dance), Ayden Lee (social media personality @actually.ayden), J. Scott Browning (The Right Stuff, I Am Frankie), Kelley Mauro (A Christmas Karen), Steven Lane (Burn Notice, Queen of the South), and Roger Greco (David Makes Man, Murder by Numbers).

Ahead of the release of the film, Holland shared her thoughts, “I came up with the idea for Egghead & Twinkie six years ago, shortly after coming out to my parents. Since then, the film has won over the hearts of thousands on TikTok, amassed an incredible cast and crew, and survived a global pandemic. While it’s been a long journey to get to this point, I am beyond excited to celebrate our international premiere at such an incredible event for LGBTQ+ cinema as BFI Flare!”
