Hell’s Half Mile Film Series

Just like the festival, our film series covers everything from quirky comedy to hard hitting documentary to amazing short films.

The 2017-2018 Hell’s Half Mile Film Series kicks off this Thursday 10/19 with Four Bottles, a wonderful film by writer/director John Painz who many of you know from his film “Stuck” that previously screened at HHM two years ago, as well as his participation with our first ever crowd-funding rally during our festival. Following the film there will be a Q&A, and then join us over at The Public House for “Cinema Social” where we’ll continue our conversation.

“Stacy just found out she didn’t get her dream job and has to decide if she’s going to stick it out in New York City or move back home to Wisconsin. Over the course of the evening she visits four friends to try and get advice, only to find out they all have their own problems… and it’s all they want to talk about.”

Our film series runs from October through March, and more films and details will be announced soon.
