Nika Belianina is an award-winning multi-hyphenate: writer/director, camerawoman and a photographer residing in Toronto. In photography, she likes to explore the themes of escapism and longing. Genuinely inspired and often working with nature, her poetic photographs have elements of magical realism and movement, creating unique emotions. Her films have played across 25 countries and numerous film festivals, such as Tribeca, San Paulo, Olympia and Sheffield. Nika participated and juried international artist residencies in Mexico, Peru and the USA and her work hung at over 30 exhibitions in Belgium, Canada, Peru and the USA. She makes fiction and documentary films and music videos. In her films, she likes to explore alternative realities (from a character's imagination to a full-on sci-fi and anti-utopia) and loves working in comedies. Belianina is a member of the Director Guild of Canada and has shot projects in Kenya, Romania, Georgia, Peru and Canada for the likes of the BBC2, Ruptly.TV, WAM Media and Federal Government of Canada.
