What is Hell’s Half Mile?

Hell’s Half Mile Film & Music Festival is more than an event for those who simply appreciate film and music. It’s a grassroots effort to develop a community that participates in the arts. In our 9-year history we have brought scores of independent films, filmmakers, actors and bands from all over the country to downtown Bay City. We’ve also brought in thousands of attendees, many from the Great Lakes Bay Region, but others coming in from all over the state of Michigan and beyond.

Much like the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and the annual Bay City Fireworks celebration, Hell’s Half Mile has become a tentpole event in mid-Michigan. With so many out of town guests, HHM has become a great opportunity to show off everything Bay City and the Great Lakes Bay Region has to offer.

If you’re attending this year’s festival, all access passes will be on sale in just a few months. If you are interested in getting your name in front of thousands of well-educated, affluent audience members, please head to our sponsorship page for more info.
