Sabine Derflinger, born in 1963 in Upper Austria, studied at the Film Academy Vienna, emphasizing on “Cinematographic narration between epic and dramatic art” (final thesis).
Since then she produced various award-winning feature films and documentaries (e.g. 42plus, Day and Night).
In 2010, Sabine Derflinger founded her own production company, named Derflinger Film, to be independent in producing her own films and documentaries, as well as to promote international cooperation (e.g. “Those who can tell no tales” (director: Jasmila Zbanic), “Em Família” – Globo TV).
In 2011, she became the first woman to ever direct an episode of the well-known Austrian crime series Tatort (“False Labelling”). Her Tatort “Down for the Count” received the Grimme Award 2014.
