SURI PARMAR is a Toronto-based creator described by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation 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 residency, where guest mentors included John Patrick Shanley and Guillermo del Toro. She is also an alumna of the Stonecoast MFA Program in Creative Writing, the Writer’s Guild of Canada’s Diverse Screenwriters’ Program, Reelworld Film Festival’s Emerging 20, Toronto International Film Festival’s Filmmaker Boot Camp, WIFT-T’s Feature Film Incubator, in collaboration with Telefilm Canada and NBC Universal, and Reykjavík International Film Festival’s Transatlantic Talent Lab for rising filmmakers.

In addition to Suri’s numerous scriptwriting and filmmaking accolades, her fiction has appeared in Crannóg magazine, The Stonecoast Review, Vague Visages, and New Haven Review, and her short films have screened around the world. She prefers to write fantasy in the vein of Kelly Link, Angela Carter, and the Wachowskis, and aspires to evoke the same awe and wonder she experienced the first time she watched the film Akira.
