Hilton Haring Party is the opening film of the 28th edition of the annual Hilton Haring Party. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 2020 edition of the Hilton Haring Party was different than normal and entirely virtual. Guests were asked to log into a livestream where they could join in on the tasting of the New Herring. 

The opening film features a drone on a quest in a race against the clock (its emptying battery) to deliver the New Herring on time for the party.

The original opening film is 1,5 minutes, but I also edited a 60 and 30 second version for media and a version including the livestream at the end.
