Join GPP at our June meeting as we welcome award-winning and critically acclaimed Atlanta filmmaker, advertising agency veteran and creative entrepreneur – Deborah Riley Draper.  REGISTER TODAY

Named to Variety Magazine’s 2016 “Top Documakers to Watch,” Riley Draper is a featured speaker at the International Film Finance Forum during the current Festival de Cannes and she will share her experience and vision of filmmaking as a medium for connecting people on common ground and “engaging with diverse audiences in a dynamic and participatory way.”
As a producer, director and writer, Deborah tells stories that allow underrepresented voices to be heard and her film Olympic Pride, American Prejudice does just that. This 2017 NAACP Image Award Nominee and 2017 Oscar-qualified documentary feature delves into the untold story of 18 black Olympians who defied Jim Crow and Nazi Supremacy in America and Germany to win medals and hearts at the 1936 Olympics in Berlin.
Last year President Obama welcomed the families of these Olympians to the White House to honor these 18 athletes’ bravery and accomplishments that put a lie to Nazi proclamations of racial superiority 81 years ago. http://www.1936olympicsmovie.com
New York Times and Los Angeles Times film critics heralded Deborah’s debut feature film, Versailles ‘73: American Runway Revolution, the first-ever film to chronicle the legendary 1973 Palace of Versailles fundraiser that pitted 5 French designers and 5 American designers and became a major fashion movement and epic runway show led by black models.
Versailles ’73 appeared by invitation at Toronto Fashion Week, Saudi Design Week, Holon Fashion Week in Israel and has been optioned by Director Tate Taylor (The Help and Girl on the Train) for a feature film. Versailles ’73 enjoyed a successful broadcast debut on LogoTV in 2015. http://www.versailles73movie.com
Deborah’s work as an ad agency executive includes blue-chip accounts IHG, Coca-Cola classic, ExxonMobil, HP, AT&T, FedEx, and Georgia Lottery. She has earned two regional Emmys, a Gold Effie, several Addy Awards and the Spelman College Digital Moving Image Salon “Celebration of Excellence” Award. She is a 2016 Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecturer at IU Cinema, a Johnson & Wales University Distinguished Visiting Professor in Entertainment Marketing and an Indiana University Jorgensen Guest Filmmaker Lecturer.
