Nino Benashvili is a writer and director from Tbilisi, Georgia, based in New York City. 

 

She is the first Georgian woman to attend the NYU Tisch Graduate Film program, where she has been named a 2023 BAFTA US Scholar, and awarded the Maurice Kanbar Scholarship. 

 

Nino’s latest film WHERE TIME STOOD STILL tells the story of a widowed mother and daughter whose ascetic life in the Caucasus mountains is interrupted by the arrival of a foreign traveler.  

 

Born during the Georgian Civil War, Nino focused her first documentary short, CHILDREN OF NIKOZI (2021), on her childhood village, Nikozi, which was bombed during the Russo-Georgian war in 2008. The film was screened at festivals worldwide and is now available to stream on PBS.
