SURI PARMAR is a Toronto-based creator described by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as an “up-and-coming filmmaker.” She was one of five writers across Canada selected for the Canadian Film Centre’s prestigious screenwriting residency, where guest mentors included John Patrick Shanley and Guillermo del Toro, and is an alumna of the Stonecoast MFA Program in Creative Writing, 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. From 2018 to 2019, she was a visiting assistant professor at Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts, teaching writing and directing film.

In addition to Suri’s numerous scriptwriting and filmmaking accolades, she was the Dramatic Works editor of The Stonecoast Review and her fiction has appeared in Crannóg magazine, Vague Visages, and New Haven Review. While she doesn’t confine herself to one particular style, her stories lean towards the fantastic and explore liminality – the intervening gaps between moments and genres.
