Yule Film Fest is a holiday-inspired short film festival that takes place online, founded in our wonderful year of 2020. Independent filmmaker Donn Weber and Hartford Film Club met with several venues in the Hartford, Connecticut area, ultimately to have COVID-19 shut down the idea across the board. Then in late October 2020, Donn was able to establish an online film festival with FilmFreeway and BingeWave (great platforms!), and ultimately Yule Film Fest was born! It had to be unique, it had to be different, and realistically it had to be fully online with awards and film screenings taking place all at once. On Monday, December 21st, 2020, Yule Film Fest premiered and found enough success to set up a future. We adapt, painfully or positively we do honestly adapt. Yule Film Fest is a showcase of holiday and unique short films that screen and are awarded in one swoop. It will be weird, unique, and beautiful.
Yule Film Fest is a holiday-inspired film festival coming into it's fourth year! We have both an online and Connecticut-local presence. We also have submissions and followers from all over the world as a well as a growing niche of US-based film fanatics. Ultimately we are a festival that thrives on casually bringing short films to light that show the depth of emotions in life (especially around the holiday season). We aim to balance our screenings with funny, laugh tear films while sprinkling the beautiful tearjerkers in that leave you silently in-tuned with a filmmaker. Quality is key with Yule Film Fest and we take pride in our success in being afloat despite beginning in 2020.
My name is Donn Weber, a filmmaker and actor that dabbles fulltime as a compliance consultant for a major insurance company. I have been lucky enough to live in a creative side career while also staying passionate in the business side of corporate America. You can find me in a handful of commercials, movies, and shows, while also not realizing I've helped separately with some commercials you may have seen on television or YouTube. I am passionate about storytelling, film, and respecting human nature. Yule Film Fest is a reflection of that.Contact the Organizer Contact the Organizer
