Bradley Cooper, David O. Russell, J.J. Abrams join Brian Grazer to raise money for nonprofit Ghetto Film School

On October 12, 2016, the Los Angeles Times reported on the fundraiser for the Ghetto Film School, a nonprofit that offers free filmmaking programs to high school students.  Abrams was in attendance and even mentioned the success the students from these programs were having interning for the director himself.  Some of these students even had the opportunity to be Stormtroopers in the recent Star Wars installment.  The organization raised $15,000 to be spent on video cameras.
