Description

Variety recently called HIFF “Telluride East,” citing it as “one of America’s most glamorous displays of the best in cutting-edge cinema” and “the place to see emerging talent before they become marquee names.” The Festival has screened the eventual Oscar Best Picture winner 10 years in a row, the only festival in the world with such a distinction. The festival was named one of MovieMaker Magazine’s 25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World as well as one of 50 Film Festivals Worth the Entry Fee.

Objective

HIFF strives to discover & support new artists while also presenting the year's best in international cinema. With its uniquely influential audiences of media elite & industry decision makers, these selections continue to play an important role during awards season, with a significant number of titles highlighted each year at the Oscars (40 nominations in 2019). HIFF Chairman Alec Baldwin continues his long running involvement with multiple programs that he curates and hosts throughout the year.
