Charleston International Film Festival used ZipSprout to help fill sponsorships for the 2016 festival. The process was super easy—we barely did a thing—and we were quickly matched. For a local nonprofit with limited staff and budget, ZipSprout is a great way to find new businesses for sponsorships.

Charleston is located at the halfway point of South Carolina’s coastline and is known for its Southern Hospitality. The city has been named the Friendliest City in America by both Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler. In fact, pineapples got their reputation as a symbol of hospitality because Charleston sea captains would come home from their travels and spear a pineapple on their front gates to let their neighbors know they were welcoming visitors.
While the weather in Charleston is usually warm and wonderful, the city has experienced nearly every natural disaster there is, from hurricanes and tornadoes to wildfires; there was even an earthquake in 1886!
Charleston has been home to some impressive firsts through the years. America’s first city-sponsored college, America’s first theater, and America’s first museum are all in Charleston. The first game of golf played in the US also occurred in Charleston, as did the first shots fired in the Civil War.
Charleston has been home to some notable people throughout the years as well, including Washington Monument designer Robert Mills, musician and playwright George Gershwin (Porgy & Bess was written in and inspired by Charleston), Morse Code inventor Samuel Morse, musician Darius Rucker, TV personality Stephen Colbert, and YouTube celebrity the Angry Grandpa.
