If you are accessing this site through a mobile phone, please request the desktop version of the site.
Please join us on Sunday, February 26, 2017, from 4-6 PM, for "And the Award Goes To...", a fun pre-Academy Awards late brunch featuring a bagel bar, mimosas, quiches and assorted desserts. Jazz musicians Joe Carter (guitar) and Tim Moran (sax and flute) will provide background music.
The event will be held at Best Video Film & Cultural Center, 1842 Whitney Ave., Hamden, CT 06517.
All attendees will be offered Oscar ballots to fill out with exciting prizes--a $100 Wave Gallery gift certificate, a $100 Cafe Amici gift card, and more--for those who correctly choose the most winners.
In addition, there will be drawings throughout the event for fun door prizes.
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 organized a film festival--BestFest Student Films--that showcased the work of local high school students this fall.
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, 2015, 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.
