Best Video Film & Cultural Center - Anniversary Celebration
If you are accessing this site through a mobile phone, please request the desktop version of the site.

Please join us on Thursday, November 10, 2016, from 7-10 PM, in celebration of the first anniversary of Best Video Film and Cultural Center (BVFCC), a non-profit created to preserve Best Video's rich archive and explore new ways to bring people, film, and music together. On November 1, 2016, BVFCC purchased Best Video from founder Hank Paper and began running it as a cultural non-profit. The celebration will take place at The Ballroom at The Outer Space in Hamden.

Tickets are $25 but please consider making a donation over and above that amount. Supporters who donate over $100 will receive complimentary admission to the show. Donations in excess of the value of admission are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

In the past year:

BVFCC was officially recognized as a tax-deductible non-profit by the IRS.

We have increased our programming with over 120 music events; more film screenings with larger turnouts and great discussions;more lectures on films by Yale Prof. Mark Schenker; and increased use of the Performance Space by community groups.

We have organized a film festival  BestFest Student Films  to showcase the work of local high school students this fall.

A lineup of superb local artists have offered to donate their talent for this event: jazz group Jeff Fuller & Friends, indie rock group Mercy Choir and others to be announced.

Steve Rodgers, owner of The Space and The Outer Space, has generously donated use of The Ballroom for our inaugural event.


Best Video Film and Cultural Center ("BVFCC") was created to preserve Best Video's rich archive and explore new ways to bring people, film, and music together. On November 1, 2016, BVFCC took over BEST VIDEO, a valued community space serving Greater New Haven with its world class film archive, performance space and coffee bar.

The entire film archive  one of the finest such collections in the country - remains in place and continues to grow with additions of more foreign and domestic films, documentaries, and television series. In addition, the music events, film screenings and other presentations in the performance space have been expanded to reach a broader community audience.
New Membership Options

Our goal is to bring good movies and good people together.  For customers who like the way we do that now, nothing will change. For just a few dollars, you will still be able to rent any movie in our archive. However, we now offer new membership formats that we believe better serve BEST VIDEO's diverse customers and provide more value and simpler access to our expansive archive.

Our Success Depends on You

We invite the support of every member of the BEST VIDEO family. If you are unable to make it to the concert, please consider making a donation. All amounts are greatly appreciated. We look forward to the participation of all of our existing members and are excited to welcome new members to our family as we continue in our efforts to enrich the cultural wealth of the greater New Haven region.
