Rolla Selbak

Filmmaker, Podcaster, Storyteller 
Rolla Selbak is a Sundance 2017 filmmaker, and a triple- minority in the film industry: a queer, Muslim-American woman.
 
She is a writer/director of film and TV drama, and is known for bringing strong female characters to the forefront of her work. She imprints her fresh point of view as a queer Arab immigrant having moved to the U.S after the first Gulf War, and often focuses on socially controversial topics.
Her most recent credits include co-producing American Paradise, a reflection of a desperate man in today'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 latest project, CHOKE, is a film she wrote and directed about a rising MMA star who hides her refugee status from her small American town, and the world. It was an official selection this year at the Emerging Voices program at HBO sponsored OUTFEST Film Festival.
