This is a more compact version of django's timeuntil filter that only shows hours & minutes. If used like {{ dt|timeto }}, will produce output like "1hr 30min". If you know for sure that the server has the same timezone as the datetime value, then you don't need datetutil.tz for utc time conversion.

from django import template
from dateutil import tz
import datetime

register = template.Library()

@register.filter
def timeto(value):
    now = datetime.datetime.now(tz.tzutc())
    diff = value.astimezone(tz.tzutc()) - now
    minutes = diff.seconds / 60
    hours = minutes / 60
    mins = minutes - (hours * 60)
    return '%dhr %dmin' % (hours, mins)
