Her first feature documentary SHADEISM: DIGGING DEEPER (2015) had its World Premiere at the 2015 Zanzibar International Film Festival, where it received a Special Jury Recognition. Nayani is an alumni of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Workshop for Diverse Creators, the HotDocs’ Doc Accelerator Program, and the 2017 ReelWorld Film Festival's Emerging 20 Program. She is also a recipient of the 2017 UN Women Yvonne M. Hebert Award for filmmakers and media makers. In the spring of 2018, Nayani's first feature drama as a director and co-writer, THIS PLACE (2020), was selected as a recipient of Telefilm Canada's inaugural Talent to Watch Program. In late 2018, Nayani had the honour of shadowing and interning with her mentor, acclaimed cinematographer Bradford Young, on the set of Netflix's limited series WHEN THEY SEE US. She was most recently a recipient of the Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television's 2019 MVP Project grant, presented by The Prism Prize and RBCxMusic. Her work and artistic development has also been supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, ArtReach Toronto, AWID, and TIFF. Nayani feels blessed to work at the intersection of cinema and social justice, working collectively to create and share screen work that seeks to say something, and engage audiences both aesthetically and consciously.
