About Michael Moore

Michael Moore is an Academy Award winner who’s legendary documentaries has been seen millions & caused social debate in the important issues of the day.

  • Fahrenheit 9/11Bowling for Columbine, Sicko, and Slacker Uprising
  • A full house at every college!

Michael Moore was born in Flint, Michigan, and attended Catholic schools, including a year in the seminary, which he says accounts for his healthy respect for the fires of hell that he believes to be located somewhere just outside Crawford, Texas. He was an Eagle Scout, Newspaper Boy of the Week, and, at 18, the youngest person ever elected to public office in the state of Michigan.

His lecture presentation was a home run! It was real, passionate, and dead-on. It was also funny, informative, and at times shocking! It had vital slap-in-the-face, get-your-act-together messaging – so necessary as we confront the “death of hope” times we now live in.”

- State University of New York, Buffalo

Moore is the Oscar and Emmy-winning director of the ground-breaking, record-setting films Roger & Me, Bowling for Columbine, and Fahrenheit 9/11, which also won the top prize at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival and went on to become the highest-grossing documentary of all time. It became the first documentary ever to premier No. 1 at the box-office in its opening weekend. Film Comment called it “The Film of the Year.”

In his newest documentary, Where To Invade Next, Moore visits various countries to examine how Europeans view work, education, health care, sex, equality, and other issues. The film premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and will be in theaters February 2016. The TIFF said this film is Moore’s “most provocative and hilarious film yet.”
