Ever since 2016, Hallmark Channel warms up winter with a lineup of romantic and heart-warming movies that celebrate the new year and new opportunities during their Winterfest event in January. This list of cozy Hallmark movies has all the winter films that premiered during the Hallmark Winterfest movie lineup.
Exploring the possibilities of new beginnings and fresh starts, Hallmark's winter movies remind us that everybody has another chance for happiness. From Luke Perry's cowboy actor in Love in Paradise looking to revitalize his career to Julie Berman's former figure skating champion wanting to win one more time in Love On Ice, these movies tell stories of folks trying to rediscover their path in life and possibly finding love along the way. In Unleashing Mr. Darcy, Love on the Slopes, and Frozen In Love characters learn to challenge preconceived notions of themselves and others while allowing themselves a fresh start.
