Nana Jorjadze is a Georgian film director, scriptwriter and actress.

Jorjadze was born in Tbilisi, and graduated first from a local musical school, and then from the architectural department at the Tbilisi State Academy of Fine Arts. Having worked as an architect in the years 1968-74, she enrolled in the Tbilisi State Theatre Institute which she completed in 1980. She debuted as an actress with the film Some Interviews on Personal Matters in 1977; and as a director with A Journey to Sopot in 1979.
