Parissa Mohit lives and works in Montréal. She has studied theatre design for 4 years before she starts continuing her exploration in film animation. She believes that her experiences in set construction and theatre design have influenced her approach to film animation. She builds her imaginary worlds in different scales. That's where she gives life to her films.
In 2010, her film « The man and the train » won the Oboro-George-Laoun prize for the best short-film. She has also been the selected artist for the M.A.I. (Montreal arts interculturelles) long term mentorship in 2011 as well as the M.A.I and PRIM residency in 2011-2012. In 2013 her script ''une visite'', for a short animation film was granted a scriptwriting grant from SODEC.
