Will and Jada Pinkett Smith Donate to NYU

Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are putting their dollars behind aspiring content creators and filmmakers.

The Hollywood couple has donated $30,000 from their Will and Jada Smith Family Foundation to NYU’s undergraduate film program in an effort to support female filmmakers and creative students working to launch television projects.

Two student-created pilots developed through Tisch’s television production class will be financed by the grant. Each selected show will receive $10,000 grants while the remaining dollars will go toward the student-run Fusion Film Festival.
