Boston's Premiere Media Arts Organization
BF/VF Closes
Where many of us started our careers

The Boston Film/Video Foundation closed its doors on February 9, 2004. (Click here for the announcement by the Board of Directors.) More Boston-area video professionals have passed through those doors than any other educational institution.

In memory of this beloved institution, we've asked some of the people associated with it to recount some of their memories...
