Director

Marteinn Thorsson was born in Reykjavik, Iceland and is a dual citizen of Iceland and Canada. Marteinn started making films at an early age, using a Super 8mm camera. By the age of 17, he had his first gig in the advertising business, as a stills photographer on a commercial film shoot. In college, he continued by making short horror flicks, while also working in television and on feature films. Two of his early films sold to Icelandic Television: Toy Soldiers to private broadcaster Channel 2 and Bogomil Font: The Crooner Behind The Curtain to state broadcaster RUV. He graduated from Ryerson University, in Toronto, Canada, with a B.F.A. degree in Film Studies in 1993 and a 65-minute film noir, Diary of an Assassin. Diary of an Assassin was selected for a premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival but Marteinn could not afford to strike a print, so he was unable to screen the film in the festival. Since then, Marteinn has written, directed and produced television dramas, comedies, documentaries & variety shows. He has helmed a series of commercials and music videos. He has also written film criticism for Icelandic Press and taught courses in Film Studies at the Icelandic Film School. Marteinn has won 5 PROMAX awards for promotional spots he created in Toronto, Ontario for Astral Media/TMN, for Showcase, and for YTV and City-TV. In 2006 he won the Icelandic Edda Award for best Television program, for the current affairs show Kompás (for broadcaster CHANNEL 2). In 2004 Marteinn co-wrote and co-directed with Jeff Renfroe the feature One Point O (a.k.a. 1.0, a.k.a. Paranoia: 1.0) starring Jeremy Sisto, Deborah Kara Unger, Udo Kier and Lance Henriksen. One Point O was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival, and has subsequently sold to more than 43 countries worldwide and won awards in places around the globe. Variety Magazine put Marteinn on its 10 Directors To Watch List in 2004. He has just released his second feature Rokland (Stormland), which is produced by Snorri Thorisson at Pegasus Pictures (Reykjavik). Along with Thorisson and Buffalo Gal Pictures (Winnipeg), he ?s developing When Falcons Fly, a Canada-Iceland co-production, about a rag-tag underdog team of 2nd generation Icelandic immigrants in Winnipeg, Canada, who go on to win the first Olympic gold in Hockey in 1920. Marteinn owns Tenderlee Motion Pictures Company (www.tenderlee.com), which has several projects in development, including YOSOY, based on a novel by Gudrun Eva Minervudottir, Gardarsholmi (The Saga Island - Thule) based on the graphic novel by Hugleikur Dagsson, Bankster, based on a novel by Gudmundur Oskarsson, an untitled horror film by writer/novelist Steinar Bragi and an original thriller, Fljótin (The Rivers) by Björn Haukur Pálsson.
