Hi, I’m Pari Mathur. Nice to meet you! I’m a San Francisco-Bay Area based filmmaker. Here is a picture of me directing on set. My children think I watch TV as a job.

I grew up in Cupertino, California and went to film school down in LA. I got sucked back up north and started a production company making TV ads and branded content. After a long run, I decided to make my first feature film, Family Party. It took me 6 years to figure out and was acquired by Netflix in 2016. In the middle of that ordeal, I found myself telling stories for tech companies like Pinterest, Coursera, and Enjoy. 

Currently, I’m a Senior Writer and Director at LinkedIn. I released my second feature film, Lucky Fifty in 2018 and just wrapped a short called Life With Wifey. Follow my filmmaking journey on my blog where I write about things like wrangling actors, snacks on set, and the delicate balance of trying to make art while raising two kids.

Message me and say hi using the form below! Sorry, what’s that? Oh, my name is pronounced Perry, not Pah-ree—thanks for asking! Below are a few links to some work. You can also see more on Vimeo.
