Bal Brach

Bal Brach is an award-winning broadcast journalist and producer with more
than 15 years experience working in Canada's top newsrooms. Frustrated at the lack of representation in Canadian television, Bal started Wrise Productions Inc. in 2015.
She wrote, directed, and produced a documentary about the growth of the Indian wedding business in Canada. Wrise Production Inc.'s first film "Little India Big Business," aired on CBC television and the Documentary Channel. In 2017, the film was named a finalist at the New York Festivals in the TV documentary category of best cultural issues. That same year, Bal was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for her stories about Syrian refugee resettlement, as part of her freelance journalism work at CBC News. At the moment, Bal has one documentary in development with a Canadian broadcaster, as well as several other projects in the pre-development stage. Her stories primarily focus on the lives and experiences of South Asians in North America.
