Shaina Ghuraya

Shaina Ghuraya jokes that she is a triple threat – she’s a wheelchair-user, Punjabi, and a woman. She is a writer/director for quirky and bold comedies that embrace diversity and explore intersectionality. A graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, Shaina’s films have gone on to screen at ReelAbilities, Hollyshorts, and Slamdance. The success of her films led her to consulting on multiple students’ scripts at USC, particularly scripts that involved the subject of disability.

In 2020, Shaina graduated from Academy Gold and received the SF Film Rainin Grant for her feature film script which she will direct. Currently, she is a staff writer on an unannounced Netflix Animation show. More about her and her work can be found at shainaghuraya.com.
