Director’s biography: Selbak is a Sundance and SXSW 2017 filmmaker whose most recent credits include co-producing AMERICAN PARADISE, a reflection of a desperate man in Trump’s America, and helming the internationally acclaimed feature film THREE VEILS, a first of its kind to confront homosexuality within the Muslim-American subculture.
Selbak’s recent project, A DAY WITH A MUSLIM, a social experimental docu-series where she brings unlikely groups of people together to meet and spend a day with a Muslim, has gained national media attention and praise in light of the current political climate in America.
Through the SAN FRANCISCO WOMEN’S FILM INSTITUTE Leadership team, she’s involved in initiatives specifically geared towards nurturing a generation of young female filmmakers.
