Why Sponsor Hell’s Half Mile Film & Music Festival?


Fun in the Fall.

Mid-Michigan is full of wonderful summertime events. After Labor Day our fall event offerings are slim. This is a great way to stay “out-and-about” in Mid Michigan’s great fall weather!

Always something new.

Every year brings a new group of films, filmmakers, and bands. There’s always something new to experience (and talk about).

Celebrate Bay City’s history!

Bay City has a long history of lively entertainment (search on-line for Hell’s Half Mile, our namesake) that Hell’s Half Mile always tries to embody. Legally, that is!

International Recognition.

Filmmakers from around the world have submitted and screened films at Hell’s Half Mile! From Australia to England to Germany, HHM is on the radar of independent filmmakers across the globe.

Our mission and our community

Hell’s Half Mile is more than an event for those who appreciate film and music. It’s a grassroots effort to develop a community that participates in the arts.

Entertainment with a “buzz.”

When something is new, edgy and as exciting as an original independent film or a talented new band then the “buzz” travels fast. There’s truly a “buzz” when the cast or crew from a film is present to talk about their experiences making the film and HHM Fest creates a great atmosphere for the audience to interact with filmmakers.

Demonstrated, proven return on investment

Hell’s Half Mile is a fun and easy way for your company to play a role in bringing new and inventive arts programs to Bay City. Your investment in HHM will help us grow into a bigger and better event with exciting new features like filmmaker forums, guest appearances, video art installations, independent film screenings throughout the year and much more. But we can’t do it without you.

In supporting HHM Fest, your business name will be exposed to crowds of filmgoers doing something they enjoy – watching movies!! On average, a festivalgoer will attend at least 4 film screenings after reviewing the program schedule and/or website. In addition to the program and web site, Hell’s Half Mile has standard or custom opportunities for exposure including:

  • Signage
  • Announcements before screenings
  • Radio advertising
  • Film intro logo or listing
  • Banners
  • Postcards
  • Product display
