Hell’s Half Mile Film Series

I hope you had the chance to join us for a few screenings during the last film series. We’re excited to program another season of varied and wonderful independent films for the Great Lakes Bay Region. We’ll be back with more shorts programs, art house darlings, new indie finds, and documentaries October 2019 through March 2020. See you at the movies!

Just like the festival, our film series covers everything from quirky comedies to hard hitting documentaries to amazing short films.  Proceeds support the Hell’s Half Mile Events nonprofit.

All Screenings $7.00. All Showtimes 7:00pm. Tickets sold at the door.

Thank you to our Film Series Sponsor...
