Gia Coppola is a fifth-generation filmmaker, photographer, screenwriter, artist, and impromptu mixologist. Gravitating toward a filmic aesthetic, she brings a fresh eye and studious perspective to every project. Often centered around strong, relatable characters, her commercial work includes spots for Uber, Instax, Samsung, Vista, Sephora, and Gucci, as well as music videos for Carly Rae Jepson and Dev Hyne’s Blood Orange.
Coppola’s feature film directorial credits include 2020 comedic drama “Mainstream,” starring Andrew Garfield and Maya Hawke, and 2013 coming-of-age drama “Palo Alto,” which is based on a collection of short stories by James Franco that she helped translate into a screenplay. Her directorial debut kicked off with the helming of a star-studded short film for innovative fashion brand Opening Ceremony after studying photography at Bard College. From there, she collaborated with Zac Posen on a project in support of his Target collection, and shot for Vogue Japan, among other projects. She also directed a section of road trip feature, “The Seven Faces of Jane,” an eight-part anthology film that premiered at the 2022 Bentonville Film Festival.
