Born and raised in Spain, Itziar Martinez is a multi hyphenate artist who from an early age found her bliss through creative expression.
Whether is touring the world as a dancer, singing or writing songs for successful projects, story telling has always been at the core of her passion for the arts. Which inevitably led her to the Seventh Art.
As an actor her credits include the American shows “Jane the Virgin”, “Louie”, as well as large productions for the Spanish network Telemundo. In 2015 she opened her production company WOL Entertainment where she co-produced and co-wrote her first feature called “Nereus”. A supernatural thriller which premiered in HBO’s NYLFF in 2018 and has been distributed in many countries including VOD in North America and theatrically in Turkey and Japan.
In 2021, Itziar won “Best First Time Filmmaker” at the Toronto International Women Film Festival, for her Directorial debut “A Heart Dies Twice”, which she also wrote and co-starred in.
