Paneet Singh – playwright and filmmaker
His work is largely inspired and informed by Sikh and South Asian culture and history, and who is most well known for his two stageplays, The Undocumented Trial of William C. Hopkinson, which has sold out every performance since its 2016 premiere, and the critically-acclaimed A Vancouver Guldasta, which 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” by Colin Thomas.
Outside of theatre and film, Paneet’s work is mostly based in history and education. He is a founding member of the South Asian Canadian Histories Association and a co-host of The Nameless Collective Podcast, which follows histories of South Asians in British Columbia.
