Patrons Circle

We enthusiastically invite you to experience HIFF behind the scenes as a member of our treasured Patrons Circle. Our Patrons enjoy the most intimate access to screenings, parties and industry events both large and small, every season of the year, while meaningfully supporting the programs and operations of our non-profit, 501c3 organization.

If you are already a HIFF Patron, we thank you and warmly welcome you back for another exciting season! If you are considering joining, we very cordially encourage you to explore the year-round advantages of joining HIFF’s inner circle.
