Sarah Bassiuoni is a graduate of the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and attended Sydney Film School. At the beginning of her career as writer and director Sarah’s films carry her wealth of experience and talents from her former life as a public interest lawyer and community advocate. Being the child of patient indulgent parents - Egyptian Muslim father, Irish Catholic mother - Sarah learnt that if she told passionate humorous stories, her imagination became a tangible, visual, adventurous world others could also enjoy. She has now combined her passion of storytelling and social change giving each of her films a social commentary undercurrent. Dynamic, incisive, highly motivated and enthusiastic with extensive practice in advocacy and public campaigning, Sarah has a passion for social justice, a love of film and intense desire to tell stories that move and take seed in our culture.
