Paneet Singh is a Punjabi-Sikh playwright and filmmaker whose work is largely inspired and informed by Sikh and South Asian cultures and history. Selected film and theatre credits include Press Breaker (Director/Co-Writer, 2021 Telus Storyhive/Diaspora Creative), Flowers From Venables (Director, Woodenbull Films 2021), The Ecstatic (Writer/Director, 2021 Indian Summer Festival), and Guards at the Taj (Director, 2019 Vancouver Fringe Festival). He also recently wrote an animated short on the Komagata Maru for Historica Canada.

 

His two stageplays have received acclaim: The Undocumented Trial of William C. Hopkinson has sold out every performance since its 2016 premiere, and the critically-acclaimed A Vancouver Guldasta was an honourable mention in “The Best of Vancouver Theatre in 2018” by Vancouver Presents. Paneet was also picked as one of 2018’s “most exciting fresh faces to watch” and a "major player" in Vancouver's South Asian Theatre community in 2019 by Colin Thomas. Full bio on paneetsingh.com
