Announcing our new Acting Director

We are thrilled to introduce our new acting director, Victoria Bridges.

This announcement comes as Gemma Bradshaw steps down from her role as Director of One World Media to take maternity leave.

“I am excited to be joining One World Media for this interim period. I look forward to working with the team to carry forward its important mission supporting journalists and filmmakers all over the world to tell stories that inform and connect us all.”
Victoria Bridges, Acting Director of One World Media

Victoria has been a valuable member of One World Media’s Board of Trustees for several years and brings a wealth of experience to the role.

In 2016, she was the Founding Executive Director of Global Girl Media UK, a charity that develops the voices and digital storytelling skills of young women from under-served communities, and she continues to mentor emerging female filmmakers.

Victoria is also an accomplished independent documentary producer and director, as well as a partner in the production company Lotus Films and an associate of InsightShare UK. She has made a wide array of factual programmes, with an emphasis on social justice and the environment, and her work has won BAFTA Insight, Cable ACE, ECHO, a Rory Peck Award nomination and a Graz Humanitarian Award.
