Victoria Wharfe-McIntyre

Victoria is a director, writer and producer. Her films have screened in over 200 festivals and won over 70 International awards including BAFTA and AACTA.

Her debut feature The Flood premiered at PÖFF Tallin Black Nights International Film Festival Official Selection in 2020 and received Best Director and Best Actor awards at Sydney Women’s International Film Festival and received a Best Supporting Actor nomination in the 2020 AACTA awards.

The Flood began a theatrical run December 2020 and appeared in David Stratton’s Best Films of 2020 piece for The Australian newspaper:

“An ambitious slice of Australian history… A formidable debut for director Victoria Wharfe McIntyre …Beautifully photographed by Kevin Scott …THE FLOOD is, in many ways spectacular…With her cartridge belt slung over her shoulder Jarah (Alexis Lane) is a formidable heroine indeed ….All the production values, including the beautifully illustrated credit titles, are first class…an ambitiously conceived epic.”

The Flood is distributed by Madman Entertainment and articled as ‘hot seller’ by ScreenDaily at EFM 2021 selling to US/UK and territories (4Digital Media) and Latin America (Encripta).

Victoria well understands the power of supported collaboration and has an established long term creative team anchored by the beautiful images of DOP Kevin Scott and remarkable scoring by Petra Salsjö; they are a multi award winning combination.

Their most recent short film Miro, written and directed by Victoria, is a WWII Australian First Nations Western. It premiered at the 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival and was nominated for Best Short Film in the 2017 AACTA awards and in 2020 the Academy listed it as one of the best short films of the decade. Acknowledged as a film of national significance Miro is held by the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.

Her film The Telegram Man has played as part of the dawn service at ANZAC Cove Gallipoli for the last seven years including the 2016 special Centenary service. Regarded as a film of artistic, cultural and historical significance by the OSCARS Academy Awards Film Archive, The Telegram Man is part of its permanent collection at the Pickford Centre in Hollywood and the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia.

Victoria has a long history in the creative arts, beginning as an actor and moving across to writing in conjunction with a drama and expression based psychotherapy practise. In the last few years she has focused on directing, this teemed with extensive life experience results in depth and complexity within her work.

She is currently working on documentary Alight After Dark and in development on her next feature film.
