Selishtë is a village and a former municipality in the Dibër County, northeastern Albania. At the 2015 local government reform it became a subdivision of the municipality Dibër.[1] The population at the 2011 census was 1,605.[2] The toponym is Slavic (Selište).[3]

A rudimentary chrome mine functions in the village. It makes the headlines occasionally due to the occasional death of miners in accidents.
