Habacuc Antonio De Rosario is a Mexican screenwriter.

Habacuc Antonio De Rosario is a Mexican writer born and bred in the border city of Reynosa, Mexico. He currently resides in Ghent, Belgium. Habacuc studied business at the well-reputed Tec de Monterrey, but soon realized that his calling lies elsewhere. In his early twenties—while completing his degree—he started pursuing his passion for literature, attending various literary workshops and writing novels, essays, short stories and more recently film scripts.
In 2014, his first novel "Sin Trincheras" won the prestigious Mexico/USA literary prize Premio Binacional de Novela Joven Frontera de Palabras (Binational Prize for Young Novelists Border of Words) and was published by the Tierra Adentro Editorial. The novel was presented in Mexico City in February 2015, at the International Book Fair in Palacio de Mineria.
Habacuc has written the feature film “La Civil” in collaboration with Belgian-Romanian director Teodora Ana Mihai. As it happened with literature, this debut didn't pass unnoticed either, as the film is part of the Official Selection for Competition at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival.
