Vivek Nipani

An immigrant's story is not complete without the struggle of belonging. Vivek Nipani began his career as a third assistant camera in Mumbai, India. His aspiration for working in Bollywood was stowed away after a traumatic experience of physical abuse. Putting this incident behind him, he had the privilege to pursue an MFA in Film and Television from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California. Vivek was fortunate to be trained by some of the best in the documentary fraternity. Luminaries like Arthur Dong, Oscar nominee and a member of the Academy, and finding a mentor in his professor Bob DeMaio who helped develop his craft as a documentary student and now as a professional. With these foundations, Vivek worked on three feature documentaries. In 2016, he was nominated for the Student Oscars and ended up as a semi-finalist for his short film, A Tale Of Two Veils, which also won Best Documentary and Promotion of Social Justice at Paramount Studios, LA. As the story goes true for most student immigrants in the US, this fairytale saga came with a timer. He was again packing his bags to return back to India due to visa restrictions. While his cohort was struggling to raise grant money for their features, Vivek spent all his energy to just belong in a place. In 2017 he returned to India after a successful life in the US. But his return did not stop him from continuing his journey as a filmmaker. Shortly after, in 2018, he was hired as an Editor on his first feature documentary, Who Is My Neighbor. In 2019 he was granted his permanent residency in Canada where he now lives and works. Vivek is an intersectional environmentalist, scuba diver, Sea Shepherd Veteran, and a student of Vipassana meditation.
