Sabina Zupanc is a screenwriter with a background in the performing arts as an actress, yoga instructor and midwife. The stories are as important to her as breathing is to life itself. 

Her wide-ranging interests touch on everything from writing coming-of-age stories to mystery-fantasy. She is especially skilled in character-driven dramas with dark, witty humor. She writes drama, comedy, fantasy, horror, and thriller with emphasis on complex characters and sharp turning points. She creates original film and tv-series for children, young adults, and adults.

Her most profound inspiration is from eccentric characters, activism, fertility, and sexuality in all its forms. Her background as a midwife gives life to her stories. The dynamic combination of her midwifery expertise and her strong sensibility for the human vulnerability promises an innovative take on comedy and drama.

She is educated from Blue Cat Screenplay (San Francisco) for Gordy Hoffman, the National Film School of Denmark, Biskops Arnö’s Screenwriter Education, and is currently attending the Alma Löv Script Academy.
