Earlier this week on Wednesday, nine of the twelve films which were made by various directors for the Collapse Into Now Film Project screened at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (Ritz Downtown) as part of SXSW’s annual film festival. Films included “Uberlin,” “Mine Smell Like Honey,” “It Happened Today,” “All the Best,” “Walk It Back,” “Alligator_Aviator_Autopilot_Antimatter,” “Discoverer,” “Oh My Heart,” and “Every Day Is Yours To Win.” Michael held a question and answer session for audience members in which he discussed the films (watch some of the films here).

Read more about the screening and Q&A at billboard.com and at the Mercury News.

Also, Michael will be appearing in the NYTimes Style Magazine this weekend; it’s online now, so be sure to check it out.
