I founded Victoria Films in Montreal in 2014, but that was not my first company , I had been learning the ins and outs of the business for more than 10 years, and so currently Victoria is going international from the U.S to India soon transiting in Morocco, with one slogan: high standards, low stress .

Films, music videos, commercials and soon music to help out young artists. We are also currently developping our new website as to offer a distribution platform, it should be ready in few weeks

Rather than where, the question is who, the answer is anybody who values freedom, thus the DIY approach.

6- How does your background of a multi-cultures woman inform your work as a filmmaker?
It certainly created an inner sense of mobility and boundlessness, so what people may perceive as mixed genres, to me is totally coherent. .

Stand up on your feet and don’t let others decide for you, or you will be waiting in line forever.

Filmmaking is only a medium, what you have to say is what matters.
