YONATAN WEINSTEIN

Writer, Director, Editor

I've been lucky enough to make, study, live and breathe film for over 15 years now: starting with the feature doc I completed at age 14, through helming narrative shorts, serving in the Israeli Air Force Film Unit, evolving at NYU Tisch, training with the BBC in London, crewing on feature film & TV sets internationally, working in script development, and most recently picture-locking a $2 million budget narrative feature I edited and co-produced.

My primary passion is directing, with an emphasis on performance. Working with actors is probably my favorite part of the job (which is why back in 2016 I jumped at the opportunity to co-direct a large-scale full-length theatre play with a cast of 25 actors!). As writer/director, I strive to create truthful emotion & thought provoking content, and find myself naturally drawn to relationship-driven dramas with dark open-ended resolutions.
