Matt's newest series 'My House' premiers on VICELAND Wednesday, April 25th at 10pm. This documentary series follows several key members of the NYC ballroom/vogue scene and highlights the amazing music, dance and personalities in this niche community. The 10 episode season features an amazing original theme by ballroom stars Byrell the Great and Precious Ramirez.
Matt has been nominated in the category 'Best Supervision on a Film Budgeted Under $5 Million' by the Guild of Music Supervisors for his work on 'The Florida Project'. This is his third overall nomination by the Guild. The 8th Annual awards ceremony will take place at the Theater at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on February 8th.
The new VICELAND series 'Slutever' premiers on the VICELAND network on Wednesday, January 24th. The 10 part doc series explores sex and society topics and stars host Karley Sciortino - and features a super sweet original theme by Devonté Hynes of Blood Orange.
Matt has been nominated for 'Outstanding Music Supervision - Film' for his work on The Florida Project by the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. In their 8th year, this annual celebration honors the top music in film, television, video games, commercials and trailers. Up against some of the absolute best films of the year - including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Baby Driver, Fifty Shades Darker and Lady Bird - this should be an extremely entertaining category!
Matt's newest project is a doc-series for the FUSION network that examines the lives of seven NYC drag queens on and off the stage. Some huge musical moments in this series - each episode features music video style lip sync performances. Catch scenes with Lizzo, Seinabo Sey, Alex Newell, Imperial Teen, Beth Ditto and more. Airs Thursday nights at 10:30pm on FUSION
Sean Baker's The Florida Project (A24) is now showing in theaters across the US - and will open worldwide in early 2018. The film has opened to fantastic reviews and continues to roll out to more cities weekly. Catch a screening in a theater near you - and keep an ear out for the amazing orchestral version of Kool & the Gang's 'Celebration' in the climactic final scene. A personal favorite...
Two of my series that I am most proud of, cleaned up at the RealScreen Awards this past week:

Meanwhile, Black Market with Michael K. Williams won for 'Outstanding Achievement in Reality/Documentary', as well as the 'Award of Excellence, Reality Programming', which is a top honor for all documentary programming.
My latest film, "The Florida Project", directed by Sean Baker, and starring Willem Dafoe, has been selected as part of the Director's Fortnight section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival!!
