In order to secure funding for "Victoria," Schipper had to agree to shoot a second version of the film with jump cuts if he was unable to accomplish his goal of directing the film in one long take.

"Victoria" was a finalist for Germany's submission to the Best Foreign Language category at the 88th Academy Awards. The Academy, however, disqualified the film because the dialogue did not contain enough of the German language for its guidelines.
