Michael J. Arbouet (born 15 April 1971 in New York) is a director, writer and producer.

Movie career[edit]

He formed his own film production company Arbo Pictures in 2000 and since then, he has produced and directed several low-budget films. Arbouet broke into the film industry with the award winning film short he directed and produced called New York Minute. This was followed by Serial, a film he produced with his brother Kevin Arbouet, Larry Strong and Alan Spindel.

He teamed up with New York City native and writer Richard Signorelli on the picture How To Grow a Fig Tree (2007), an urban coming of age movie set in the Brooklyn/Queens area with an Italian backdrop. The film went on to win the Accolade Competition for Best Short film.[1]

Michael produced the low-budget independent crime drama, Send No Flowers (2013),[2][unreliable source?] starring Sean Young and Gianni Russo.

At the 2013 Long Island International Film Expo, Send No Flowers won several awards, including a Best Cinematography in a Feature Film, Best Editing in a Feature Film, Best Original Score for a Feature Film, Best Actor in a Feature Film and the Audience Award.[3]
