Nino Orjonikidze

Director / Producer




In 2008 established a production company Artefact Production. Since then I am developing, producing and directing documentary films.

Graduated from Goldsmiths, University of London and Tbilisi State University. Also studied teaching methods and training design in Netherlands, have received Chevening (UK) and Nuffic (Netherlands) scholarships.
Before shifting to creative documentary, for more then 15 years I worked for Broadcasting channels and Media organizations in Georgia. Have started as a reporter, but later moved to producing and directing factual TV programs and documentaries.
Occasionally worked as a fixer or a freelance producer for international broadcasters/agencies including BBC, France24, AP etc.

I teach Documentary and experimental filmmaking at the Caucasus School of Journalism and Media Management (GIPA). Also work as a visual storytelling consultant for the Media Platform 'Chai Khana' supervising short documentary film production.
