Growing up between Italy's quiet countryside and the outsized cities of China gave transnational producer Selena Leoni a unique viewpoint of the world. Her love for art and technology led her to City University of Hong Kong, where she earned her BAS in New Media in 2015. After graduation, she worked as a Multimedia Content Producer in Hong Kong for over three years and developed several Multimedia VR projects that focused on improving social inclusion.
In pursuit of further personal and professional development, Selena attended UCLA's Producers Program, where she earned a Master's Degree in Film and Television in 2020.
She is currently a Producer fellow in Film Independent’s Project Involve 2021 and works as an independent producer. She has several projects currently in development, and her most recent credits include Wayfarer Studios' feature film SMILE OR HUG, and Bryant Griffin's feature debut YOUNG KINGS. Selena's interests lie in developing globalized character-driven stories that give underrepresented groups a platform and a voice. Her passion is for female-led thrillers, biopunk, dark comedy, and crime dramas.
Selena resides in Los Angeles with her two cats, Whiskey and Sour.
