Vitória Vasconcellos is a Brazilian actor-director who goes around the world telling stories about female endurance and the peculiar, most intimate bits of the human experience which we often fail to treasure.  Her short thriller Pathei Mathos was included in the 2021 Festival de Cannes Short Film Corner selection, won the Best Experimental Film award at the largest student festival in the world (Ivy Film Festival), in addition to winning multiple awards around the world. A 2021 TIFF Filmmaker Lab participant, Vitória’s work explore the intersectionality of the female experience (with Latinas often in focus) and the sensorial poetry that connects us to the world.  
She graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, where she was one of the 50 students awarded the Global Scholar distinction, and is a current student of the Stella Adler Art of Acting Studio in Los Angeles. Recently, Vitória was awarded the National Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) Emerging Content Scholarship.
