A California native and an award winning filmmaker, Victoria Greene had a successful marketing career before changing gears by entering the film industry and forming her production company, Greene Bayou Films.
After four years in the making, FORGOTTEN BAYOU, a documentary and Victoria’s first feature film, premiered at the New Orleans Film Festival in October 2016, and since has screened throughout the United States receiving a few awards and accolades along the way. “Monster in the Bayou” a short documentary film on the same subject has screened all over the world and won best documentary during Women in Film & Television International Short Film Short-Case.
These film puts a face on an industrial disaster, the Bayou Corne sinkhole by humanizing the event and sharing the stories and experiences from the very people who lived through it.
Victoria also gives back to the community. She is an advisory board member for The Cool Cooperative, an after school film program for underprivileged youth in addition to working as a volunteer for film organizations, and festivals. Plus she spent over twenty years as an on-air anchor and host during PBS pledge drives. It was during the interviews with filmmakers that Victoria fell in love with this type of storytelling.
Associations include WIFT-Louisiana, (Women in Film and Television) in which she sat on the board for several years, New Orleans Film Society and NOVAC (New Orleans Video & Access Center). Again working in marketing along with producing films, Victoria is a graduate of Louisiana State University and a passionate sports fan. She resides in New Orleans with her two pups, Reggie and Lena.
