Paramita Nath is an independent documentary maker based in Toronto and New York. She works in both traditional and emerging platforms, experimenting with new approaches to storytelling. In 2012 she founded Chitra Film & Media Inc to support her creative vision.

Her debut short Found (2009) has been described as “visually remarkable” (Huffington Post) “like a poem… a cinematic gem” (DOK Leipzig). Following its premiere at TIFF, the film received multiple awards and travelled to over 30 festivals worldwide. Durga (2012) is her second short and had its premiere at Hot Docs.

Since 2009, Paramita has been part of the core creative team for the critically acclaimed HIGHRISE web-doc project (NFB) that has won every major award for digital non-fiction nationally and internationally.

In 2012-13, Paramita worked as lead Interactive Producer for the experimental web doc 17.000 Islands (CPH: DOX Lab & Norwegian Film Institute) in collaboration with award winning Norwegian documentarian Thomas Østbye and Indonesian filmmaker Edwin.

Paramita is currently in post-production with Shadow Waltz, a mid-length creative doc about acclaimed Canadian jazz musician Phil Dwyer’s battle with addiction and mental illness.
