Pratibha Parmar is a British filmmaker. She has worked as a director, producer and writer. Parmar is known internationally for her political and often controversial documentary film work as well as her activism within the global feminism and lesbian rights movements. She has collaborated with many well-known artists and activists, and public figures across the world. Parmar specifically uses the camera to benefit women worldwide. Focusing her lens on disenfranchised communities and peoples internationally, her contribution to worldwide humanitarian rights and education has been crucial. Her films are marked by political complexity and visual richness, taking up the themes of women’s strength, racial and cultural oppression and the lives of South Asian LBGT people. Parmar is well-known for drawing on humour, wit, women’s everyday lives and visionary storytelling to articulate the realities and dreams of feminist, queer and South Asian diasporic life.

In particular, Parmar’s award-winning documentary Warrior Marks (1993), made in collaboration with Pulitzer-Prize winning novelist Alice Walker (author of The Color Purple), located Parmar deep within multiple conversations about globalization and women’s responsibilities to other women. Parmar went on to co-publish Warrior Marks: Female Genital Mutilation and the Sexual Blinding of Women with Walker.

Parmar has also made music videos for Morcheeba, Tori Amos, Ghostlands and Midge Ure.

In the fall of 2007, Pratibha Parmar was awarded the Visionary Award by the One in Ten Film Festival for her entire body of work and she is a past winner of the San Francisco Frameline Film Festival Life Time Achievement Award.
