Best Film and Video Corporation

From Home Video


Best Film and Video Corporation was a home video distributor founded by Roy Winnick in 1983. Initially releasing feature films, Best Film and Video shifted its focus in the mid-1980s with the launch of VideoTrivia in 1984, and secured a deal to distribute titles for Image Magnetic Associates in 1985.

The company attempted to purchase VidAmerica, Inc. in 1990, but the deal fell through. A year later, Best Film and Video secured a deal with New World International to distribute titles from the Marvel Productions library, and a deal with Mulberry Square Productions to distribute its library, including the Benji franchise.

In the early 1990s, the company also secured licensing deals with Streamline Pictures and Imperial Entertainment to re-release its titles for budget. Image Entertainment became the company's agent for Laserdisc and DVD releases.

In the late 1990s, Best Film and Video sought bankruptcy protection, following a series of lawsuits against Marvel Entertainment Group in the mid-1990s.
