Tina Gharavi photoTina Gharavi is a BAFTA-nominated filmmaker, initially trained as a painter. Noted for innovative cross-platform work she has garnered the attention of the film industry through her acclaimed feature, I Am Nasrine. Sir Ben Kingsley called it “a life enhancing film… An important and much needed film.” Fearless in her approach to storytelling, her work has been selected for Sundance, broadcast globally and her installations exhibited at museums around the world. Her focus has consistently been risk-taking, imaginative (often about the nature of storytelling), and global in its perspective. She is currently in development with Film4 UK on her 2nd feature film, provisionally entitled, The Good Iranian.
