In other words, set our minds’ eyes on fire and we’ll do everything possible to get your film seen. Feel free to browse our 2013 website for a better understanding of our programming tastes.

    Any work produced in the past 18 months is eligible for both our official jury competition and our Public’s Prize.

    MISSION & OBJECTIVE:

    The Hell's Half Mile Film & Music Festival (HHM) is the perfect mix of independent film and live indie music. You may not have heard of us yet, but we’ll try to leave you with a lasting impression as we have with past guests. "I don't remember much of my two years going to Hell's Half Mile. That's how much fun I had." – Rider Strong, “Cabin Fever” and two time HHM guest. (note: your experience may vary)

    Our taste is eclectic, everything from quirky comedy to hard hitting documentary to super hero film. Our goal is to find "the little film that could" -- a bunch of them -- and bring the filmmakers together to take over the town of Bay City. Our primary concern is community, and the filmmakers who attend our long weekend walk away with lifelong friends and future collaborators.

    In the last eight years over 100 directors, producers, screenwriters and actors have joined our growing audience. We provide travel and accommodations to a limited number of filmmakers, plus all-access passes and catered receptions for all attending filmmakers. All venues are within a few block radius and hotels are within walking distance, making it super easy to get around. Visit hhmfest.com for links to the venues and video recaps of the 2012 and 2013 festivals.

    We schedule events to help you connect with each other and the local community. Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including unique outings that give you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema. "I've never been to a fest that has such a positive immediate energy like yours, particularly letting the filmmakers get to know each other." - David Spaltro "Things I Don't Understand"

    Our hope is to provide you with a casual, fun experience, including a unique outing that gives you a taste of the local flavor. It’s the least we can do in return for providing our festival-goers with great independent cinema. Once you become an HHM alum you’ll receive fee waivers for future projects and all-access passes for subsequent HHM Fests, whether you have a film in our program or not. Additionally, upon selection, your first-year submission fees are refunded, making it easy (and affordable) to submit to another festival. “Hell's Half Mile gives me warm feelings in my heart. The warm feeling in my pants is possibly unrelated. It’s worth every minute and it's the kind of festival that you make movies for.” – Kenny Stevenson, writer and actor, "Love, Sex and Missed Connections".

    Filmmakers are encouraged to participate in panel discussions, receptions and other events. Because we are beginning to foster student and local filmmaking, we provide opportunities for guest filmmakers to present a workshop or lecture focused on a specific topic or specialty. Other guests are invited to screen our student and local short films and give constructive feedback to the filmmakers. This type of mentoring helps to strengthen local filmmaking and continue our relationships with area universities.

    BAFTA considered and accredited. Lift-Off International Film Festival has a plan, which is to create a strong and truly independent platform for filmmakers, showcasing official selections in Europe and the United States, building an industry within the industry, and helping to launch the careers of their filmmakers.

    With the aim to create a truly self reliant indie movement through the transatlantic exchange of exceptional independent film from all over the globe, Lift-Off's motto is to "Look Beyond The Gloss - Putting Talent Before Technology", this means that it doesn't matter what camera you used or what fancy lens kit. It is all about the talent in-front of the camera, the words off the page, the direction, the filling of a frame with narrative, and the emotional journey.

    Lift-Off's mission is clear; Lift-Off Film Festivals want to become the largest independent only festival, free of agents, film stars or production house sample films. We want filmmakers at the grass roots and we want to help these artists to achieve their potential.
