Yes, inter-domain event channels exist for this purpose. Basically a sticky bit in each domain, which the other can cause to be set. When a bit flips 0->1 that domain gets an async callback (‘interrupt’).

What are the possible methods for inter-domain communication between HVM guests?  Specifically, is there a way to use interrupts in aiding the notification of arrived inter-domain messages to applications running on HVM guests?
