Hells Half Mile Film & Music Festival

Young international film festival: independent film and live indie music.

About

The Hell's Half Mile Film & Music Festival (HHM) is the perfect mix of independent film and live indie music. You may not have heard of us yet, but we’ll try to leave you with a lasting impression as we have with past guests.

Our taste is eclectic, everything from quirky comedy to hard hitting documentary to super hero film. Our goal is to find "the little film that could" — a bunch of them — and bring the filmmakers together to take over the town of Bay City. Our primary concern is community, and the filmmakers who attend our long weekend walk away with lifelong friends and future collaborators.
