Videomatica Film Collection Finds New Home at UBC

Videomatica Film Collection Finds New Home at UBC

After nearly 30 years in business, Vancouver’s beloved video rental store Videomatica donated its 28,000-piece film collection to UBC and SFU. The collection, which includes VHS, DVDs, and Blue-Rays includes classics, musicals, cult hits, documentaries, independent and foreign films from more than 75 countries, as well as selections from the Vancouver International Film Festival, will be housed at the UBC Library. Videomatica’s two co-founders, Graham Peat and Brian Bosworth are both former UBC students (in creative writing, and history and film, respectively) that met several years after attending university while working together in television production. The collection will become available for borrowing through the library in 2013.
