Victoria Jorgensen is an award-winning Tampa Bay-based filmmaker and film festival organizer and board member of the WIFT - FL Tampa Bay branch. Jorgensen began her film career in 1977. Her films include many award-winning documentaries, narrative shorts and video installations. Jorgensen left a successful career in the marketing and advertising industry in 2016 to concentrate on creative film-making. She has attended the Berlin and/or Toronto Film Festivals annually since 1999, returning to Tampa Bay with programming suggestions for local area film festivals. Her films have shown at festivals around the world including a three woman show, “formato”, at Museuda Imagem R Do Som, in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Cannes Film Festival 2017. Jorgensen’s newest short film, “The Magic Hour,” which debuted in February 2019 at Festivale 50 in Largo, truly embodies her artistic style. The filmmaker follows six local women, all between the ages of 62 and 81, and dives into the pressures, joys and pains of being caught in the “Third Age.”
