Sabrina Sellers is an image maker and a supporter of artists and brings those two passions together through her photography and filmmaking work. She believes in the power of images as an effective storytelling tool that helps people understand themselves and each other. Her skills are varied under the realms of photography, production management, and artist development.

Sabrina is an accomplished, self-taught, documentary and editorial photographer. After an injury ended her pursuit of a professional ballet career, she channeled her creative energy into photography. Her experience as a Black ballerina has informed much of her work; she seeks to highlight underrepresented folks in culture, art, and sport in addition to exploring portraiture that centers collaborators of color. She has had her work featured with Nike Skateboardingi-D, and the San Francisco Chronicle, to name a few, and works collaboratively with the Black Joy Parade and, the non-profit, Skate Like A Girl.  She is currently working on a portrait series called, all my friends, which can be seen on her instagram.

Film

Sabrina is currently a production coordinator at Pixar Animation Studios working as the animation coordinator for the upcoming feature film, Elio (2025). She got her start as the artist development coordinator at SFFILM where she supported narrative and documentary filmmakers in both grants and residencies. Most notably, she helped support through the program films like, Against The Tide  (2023), Earth Mama (2023), and The Strike (2024). 

She believes that film should be accessible to everyone and is part of a filmmaker team that helped program a first-of-its-kind workshop series for Forward This Productions, a production studio housed in the media lab at San Quentin State Prison. 

Outside of Pixar, Sabrina has an interest in supporting filmmakers of color who make character-driven films across themes of identity, family, and relationships, in addition to films about labor and the prison industrial complex. She continues to review applications for SFFILM's artist development team and supports filmmakers in grant-writing.
