SURI PARMAR is a Toronto-based writer and content creator described by CBC as an “up-and-coming filmmaker.” In 2011, she was one of five writers from across Canada selected for the Canadian Film Centre’s prestigious screenwriting program. She is also an alumna of the Stonecoast MFA Program in Creative Writing, the Writer’s Guild of Canada’s Diverse Screenwriters Program, and Reykjavík International Film Festival’s Transatlantic Talent Lab for rising filmmakers. Her fiction has been published in Crannóg magazine and her short films have screened around the world.
Although Suri writes in a variety of genres, she prefers fantasy, and includes Kelly Link, Angela Carter, and the Wachowskis among her influences. She aspires to evoke the same awe and wonder she herself experienced the first time she watched the film Akira.
