Last week’s historic flood caused about $30,000 in damage to a Columbia nonprofit, with the looming costs threatening to shut down the organization.
The South Carolina Film Institute risks closing its doors due to the flooding and other damage to its headquarters, according to a news release.
"We are at a pivotal point, we don't know if we will be able to remain open", owner Marcus McCall said.
SCFI is a nonprofit that provides filmmakers from across South Carolina the opportunity to gain experience in the film industry, build resumes and earn film credits. The organization has also set up internships in film making for more than 100 college students, including 40 from the University of South Carolina.
