Film Maudit 2.0 - World Premiere! - Midnight: AVANT HORROR shorts Program - Santa Monica, CA
Film Maudit 2.0 is the inaugural edition of a festival in Los Angeles of outre films, inspired by legendary artist Jean Cocteau’s festival, Le Film Maudit, which celebrated a group of films that were criminally overlooked and neglected at the time. Film Maudit 2.0 will take place on November 14 – 16, 2019. The term film maudit literally means “cursed films,” and this showcase of counter-cinema will blend together both narrative, documentary and experimental films that in their style and/or subject matter, are deliberately bold, extreme, confrontational, troubling, shocking and/or unusual. We are looking for adventuresome works that deal with socio-political issues, taboo subjects, and challenge artistic assumptions and sexual mores.





Michael is directing the "Pride" segment for the upcoming horror feature anthology SINS, produced by The Enchanted Architect and The Peacock’ Tale Ltd.

The sin directors are:

Domiziano Cristopharo (LUST), Sam Mason-Bell (ENVY), Poison Rouge (GREED), Jason Impey (GLUTTONY), Michael J. Epstein (PRIDE), Elisa Carrera Fumagalli (SLOTH), and Dario Almerighi (WRATH).
