Nana Jorjadze (Georgian: ნანა ჯორჯაძე; born 24 August 1948) is a Georgian film director, scriptwriter and actress. [1]

Jorjadze was born in Tbilisi, and graduated first from a local musical school (1966), and then from the architectural department at the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts (1972). Having worked as an architect in the years 1968-74, she enrolled in the Tbilisi State Theatre Institute which she completed in 1980. She debuted as an actress with the film Some Interviews on Personal Matters in 1977; and as a director with A Journey to Sopot in 1979. Her 1987 work Robinsonada or My English Grandfather was a breakthrough which won her the Caméra d'Or at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival,[2] and both critical and popular acclaim. She moved to France early in the 1990s and directed several films including A Chef in Love (1996) which became the first, and so far the only, Georgian film to be nominated for the Academy Award.[3][4]

She is married to fellow Georgian writer and director Irakli Kvirikadze.
