Francis Ford Coppola

Legendary Producer, Director & Screenwriter


One of the most innovative and influential filmmakers of all time, Francis Ford Coppola is the founder of American Zoetrope and is responsible for initiating and nourishing the careers of such talented directors and actors as George Lucas, daughter Sofia Coppola, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Harrison Ford, Richard Dreyfuss, Diane Keaton, Robert Duvall, and Diane Lane. Zoetrope-produced films have received 16 Academy Awards and 70 nominations, with four included in the American Film Institute's Top 100 American Films.

Known for his commitment to directing projects that capture his imagination, Coppola has an impressive body of work that includes The Godfather trilogy, Apocalypse Now, The Conversation, Peggy Sue Got Married, and Bram Stoker's Dracula. Also an entrepreneur, he is the owner of Francis Ford Coppola Presents, a lifestyle brand marketing Coppola's winery, restaurants, travel resorts, and movies.

Francis Ford Coppola has always been a dreamer, but he is one of those rare people who determinedly has turned his dreams into reality. With the imagination of a child and an ever-curious mind, he continues to pursue his conviction that the magic combination of talent and technology, which was the basis of the birth of the motion picture, can continue to combine in ever new ways.
