Sarah Sellman is a filmmaker and artist based in Los Angeles. Sarah graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Film and Television. Her feature documentary, American Bear: An Adventure In The Kindness Of Strangers screened at festivals across the country, culminating in a self organized theatrical release and educational screening tour, as well as an online and DVD release.
