Aimiende Negbenebor Sela is a Writer-Director of Nigerian descent, raised by a Jewish-Israeli family from the Bronx, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California. Her award-winning short films have screened at numerous festivals across the world, and her feature screenplays have placed in several competitions including AFF, Screencraft Film Fund, Cinestory and the top 15% at Nicolls; her latest screenplay, Utopia, made it to the second round at the 2018 Sundance Writer’s Lab. Growing up as that kid glued to The Sound of Music, back in Nigeria, to the adult now dazzled by the complexity of the characters in 12 Angry Men, films have always helped Aimiende make sense of the world. As a result, her work interrogates the human condition, but with empathy; as she truly believes we all live the same lives, we’re just colored differently. Her production company, Sela Films LLC, was born out of this belief in order to help push the boundaries of innovation, inclusion, diversity and creativity with a focus on humanism.
Ms. Sela is currently in pre-production for her fifth dramatic short film Hermit. On a day that would have marked his 18th year wedding anniversary, a grieving husband mourns the loss of his soul mate.
