ABOUT WILLIAM VITÓRIA
William Vitoria is a director, writer, editor and set designer from Toronto. Lived 14 years in his parent’s native grounds of Portugal where he found a passion for creating short films, based off the lands, culture, history and coasts of Portugal, adding in a little Canadian spunk to his films. After 14 years of living the coastal Portuguese lifestyle, in 2012 William received the news that he would be moving back to Toronto. So with great spite and hesitation, he embarked on another transition in life embracing the newly found changes to which he adapted pretty well. Williams’s transition lead him into pursuing his old passion of film, by attending the Toronto Film School, studying Film Production. While pursuing his education, William worked on many films in school. Since completion of his course William has taken on works such as filming a short fashion commercial for designer Patrick Salonga, which was showcased at TOM Fashion Week, along with filming his trips around the world, a short film, The Void, selected at Toronto Urban Film Festival (TUFF), Fashion Film for the collection MEÜS by Sofia Contreras a fashion designer from Guatemala presented in London, UK, and recently Mar, a short film that won an Award of Distinction by Canada Shorts Film Festival, was selected at Rio Gender & Sexuality Film Festival 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and was shown in Canada, Portugal, Brazil,Spain, Guatemala and Panama.
