Victoria Film is an integrated, production company specialized in film-making. Since establishment in 2017, our main aim has been to stand out with our unique and innovative work that reflects the artistic angle of life. Our goal is to script, direct and produce new ideas with a voice of our own, while balancing between both quality and content. With each film we make, we fill the need for expressive, deep, entertaining art that raises the bar for today’s viewers who long for relatable or influential cinema.
Making films is a form of art. It can be compelling, provocative, inspirational or expressive of different aspects of life. Having realized this, Sherif Mohsen, a man of two lives, a pilot and a cinema enthusiast, has dreamed Victoria Film into existence. The name was inspired from the place he discovered his talent as an actor and even director; the place where it all began, Victoria College High School. Despite building a 17-year long career in aviation, his love for cinema – that started at the age of 16 – never faded. His desire for creating his own stories, telling many narratives of life in a new artistic way was the main drive to realize this dream and the beginning of an exciting journey towards making a difference in the film industry.
