Howdy folks - I have a question about how to start a
legal organization (I guess a non-profit) in order to
run a screening series or a microcinema. I recently
landed a full time archivist position and it’s always
been my goal to try to run semi-regular film
screenings once I got established somewhere (Columbia,
South Carolina). I have experience running very
informal screenings around town, but in order to rent
from places like filmmaker’s co-op or to ask for a few
bucks from the SC arts council I need to be an
institution. I'm sure people onlist have experience
doing this – so how should one get started? And
really - any advice would be greatly appreciated.
