FILM + MUSIC + ENERGY + YOU = HHM!

Earn tickets and passes by helping out with planning, special events before, during, and after the festival.

We need energetic, enthusiastic, and devoted volunteers to help us make our event a success. Volunteer and meet others who share your interest in film and music. There are many ways to help: planning, promoting, ushering/guest assistance, event set-up/break-down, reception/party support, film/photo/sound tech, concessions, and merchandise.

We invite both individuals and groups to volunteer at HHM. Bay County businesses: volunteering for the HHM can be a great team-building activity and opportunity to enhance our local art & entertainment for members of our community.
