Meet Tori Hunter, Director, Writer, Script Supervisor

Victoria “Tori” Hunter, originally a competitive athlete from Chattanooga, TN, transitioned unexpectedly into filmmaking during college after playing softball. She gained experience in writing, directing, and script supervising, learning from prominent directors such as Alex Kendrick and Brian Herzlinger. Notable among her achievements is her script supervising role on the feature film “Overcomer.” Tori’s storytelling abilities were refined through her experiences, culminating in her directorial debut with “The Christmas Letter,” featuring renowned actors.
 
She aims to infuse her projects with the imaginative spirit of her inner child and the wisdom of her adult self, emphasizing the theme of hope in her narratives.

JD DeWitt, Producer

I first met Shari at the 2018 NRB conference in Nashville. Nobody knew me from anybody but I was immediately welcomed into The Women in My World and introduced to women in the industry who I’ve come to greatly admire and work with today! The heart to support one another did not go unnoticed and coming from the mainstream side of the business, I was truly impressed with the authenticity of this group.

Getting connected to the vision of creating creative opportunities for Christian women filmmakers has been life-changing for me. The generosity of spirit and resources in this talented mix has been a blessing and one that makes me desire to give back tenfold as I go on to produce film and tv. 

I’m very grateful for the creative passion that Shari spreads and makes a way for others in TWIMW to participate, and I am happy to align myself and represent women in this industry with a likewise heart to serve.
