- LOS ANGELES
Partizan has added filmmaker Martin Holzman to its roster for representation in the U.S., U.K., France and Canada. This marks Holzman’s first time being repped in the U.S. market.
In his young career, Holzman has come to be defined by visionary storytelling and a commitment to captivating audiences. His passion for getting laughs and crafting narratives that resonate deeply with viewers earned him three Lions at Cannes in 2023 for his Quilmes Beer “Coincidences” spot (co-directed with Augusto Giménez Zapiola via production company ARGENTINACINE) out of AB InBev agency Draftline in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Additional critical acclaim was garnered for Axe’s “Oops, I Forgot This at Your Place Collection” where guys who misquote Socrates and talk about crypto use the George Constanza-inspired move of leaving their scent behind on “forgotten” clothing items.
Partizan founder Georges Bermann said, “Martin brings a unique and captivating point of view to Partizan’s roster. His sense of humor is a clever match for the cinematic tone of his films, and his vision aligns with our commitment to storytelling excellence.”
“Collaborating with Partizan is an exhilarating step forward in my artistic journey,” remarked Holzman. “Their commitment to pushing the envelope aligns perfectly with my own creative ethos, and I am excited to explore new horizons and bring fresh narratives to life.”
Born in Buenos Aires, Holzman went on to begin film school at the age of 5 when he would beg his mother to take him to Blockbuster Video to escape the heat. Proper cinematic studies would be completed later at Universidad del Cine, in Buenos Aires.
Holzman is a globetrotter who can be found in various time zones, always with fast internet and good coffee. Recent clients include BBDO, MullenLowe, AXE, Cazadores Tequila, and Quilmes Beer. He is represented by Partizan across all offices.
