Aimiende Negbenebor Sela is a Writer-Director of Nigerian descent, adopted by a Jewish-Israeli family from the Bronx.
Her award-winning short films have screened at numerous festivals across the world, and her screenplays have placed in several contests including Austin Film Festival, Cinestory Fellowship, Nicolls Academy, Screencraft, and the Sundance Writer’s Lab.
As a short form prose writer, Aimiende's work has been published in several magazines. Her favorite short story, Peach Cobbler, was published in African Voices Magazine – a publication dedicated to fostering cultural understanding and awareness through literature, art, and film.
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.
Hermit, her latest short film, is a drama about a grieving husband coming to terms with this loss of his soulmate on a night that would’ve marked their eighteenth wedding anniversary. It’s currently making its rounds on the festival circuit.
Aimiende currently resides in Los Angeles, California, with her husband and their fourteen-year-old Shih Tzu, Orlando.
