I crafted my storytelling practice through film production and screenwriting at New York University and the Iranian Young Cinema Society.
This creative education is enriched with solid research and legal knowledge through a diploma in journalism and further supported through a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication from Simon Fraser University.
My projects have been generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, BC Arts Council, Creative BC, Bravo TV, CMF, CBC, NFB, Java films, Super Channel, Women Makes Movies, Cinema Politica, Tolo TV and RTA (Afghanistan).
