On the warm summer evening of Wednesday, Aug. 8, downtown Bay City’s Unity Park was the launching ground for Hell’s Half Mile reveal party. They gave the public a sneak peak of all the featured films and music at this year’s upcoming festival.

We can expect to see a mixture of locally based and worldwide talent featured in over 20 full length films as well as 42 short films. “Skippers” directed by Aaron Wertheimer is one film that festival attendees will want to add to their watch list. Filmed right in our hometown of Bay City, Michigan, you will see familiar spots from various locations around the downtown area and our local state park in many of the scenes. Recurring festival fans may recognize Wertheimer’s unique film style in this comedy from his previous hit film, “Wedgerino,” featured at Hell’s Half Mile in 2015.

For music enthusiasts, Hell’s Half Mile has lined up a wide range of musicians ranging from the popular Chicago native band, “Maps & Atlases” to our local beloved band, “Catfood Sandwich.” There is something for everyone to enjoy with family and friends this upcoming month in historic downtown Bay City.

The 13th annual festival will take place Thursday, Sept. 27 concluding Sunday, Sept. 30. Visit hellshalfmile.com for more information on the festival, volunteer opportunities and where to buy film and music passes.
