The ceremony, to be held Nov. 5, will make a contribution to the charity that supports entertainment industry workers.

The 21st annual Hollywood Film Awards, which will take place Nov. 5, will make a substantial contribution to the Motion Picture and Television Fund, it was announced Thursday by Dick Clark Productions, which produces the event.

“The Motion Picture and Television Fund does terrific work in the entertainment community. It is an honor and pleasure to contribute to those efforts,” said Allen Shapiro, CEO of Dick Clark Productions, which has overseen the awards since 2014, in announcing the initiative, which will be an annual commitment.

“MPTF supports over 5,000 entertainment industry families through a variety of services annually and depends on the support of everyone in our community to make these programs and services possible,” Jeffrey Katzenberg, MPTF Foundation chairman, noted. “The generous support of Dick Clark Productions allows us to further our mission and provide a culture of caring to members of our industry in times of need.”

The ceremony, which will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, has become a regular stop on the awards season calendar, as it recognizes the top talent among the year’s films — from actors, writers and directors to artists in the fields of cinematography, visual effects, film composing, costume design, editing, production design, sound and makeup & hairstyling. This year’s honorees have not yet been announced.

Editor's note: The Hollywood Film Awards is owned by Dick Clark Productions, which shares an owner with The Hollywood Reporter.
