Jacques Martineau (born 8 July 1963) is a French film director and screenwriter who works in collaboration with partner Olivier Ducastel.
After spending his adolescence in Nice, Martineau moved to Paris to study at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. After graduating, he took up a teaching post at the facility.
In 1995 Martineau met Olivier Ducastel, and the two began a professional and personal relationship. Their first collaborative venture, Jeanne et le Garçon formidable (an HIV/AIDS-themed musical comedy inspired by the films of Jacques Demy and featuring Virginie Ledoyen and Demy's son Mathieu), was released in 1998. The film was entered into the 48th Berlin International Film Festival. 
Ducastel and Martineau have since directed further films with gay-related storylines, including the ambitious, almost three-hour-long Nés en 68 starring Laetitia Casta and Yannick Renier. 
Martineau currently combines film work with a lectureship at Paris X University Nanterre.

Jacques Demy was a French director, lyricist, and screenwriter. He appeared in the wake of the French New Wave alongside contemporaries like Jean-Luc Godard and François Truffaut. Demy's films are celebrated for their visual style, which drew upon diverse sources such as classic Hollywood musicals, the documentary realism of his French New Wave colleagues, fairy tales, jazz, Japanese manga, and the opera. His films contain overlapping continuity, lush musical scores and motifs like teenage love, labor rights, incest, and the intersection between dreams and reality. He is best known for the two musicals he directed in the mid-1960s: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) and The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967).
