Curated DVD Collection

We partnered with the Mount Pleasant Public Library to create a permanent movie collection designated the Jacob Burns Film Center Curated Collection, a unique collection of carefully selected high-quality films. The collection will continue to grow on an on-going basis by recommendations from the Film Center’s programming department.

The collection currently includes more than 600 unique titles, and grows by almost 50 titles per year! They are housed at the Library at 350 Bedford Road in Pleasantville, NY. All library card holders in the county are welcome to visit the library to enjoy the collection. A detailed listing of all titles can be found on the library’s homepage at

This group of films features some of the great selections that have screened at the JBFC Theater. Some highlights from the collection include popular film such as Jonathan Demme's Rachel Getting Married, Jason Reitman's Up in the Air, and Lone Sherfig's An Education; classic films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Notorious, Mike Nichols' The Graduate, and Gillo Pontecorvo's The Battle of Algiers; great foreign films such as Matteo Garrone's Gomorrah, Federico Fellini's Roma, and Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon; and entertaining films for children of all ages including Nina Paley's Sita Sings the Blues, Victor Fleming's The Wizard of Oz, and Albert Lamorisse's The White Mane; along with many more great films in the collection.

The Mount Pleasant Public Library serves a community of 33,000 in the Town of Mount Pleasant and Village of Pleasantville, NY. The Library’s lending collection includes books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs and periodicals. Services include storytimes for children, lectures and author series for adults, and PCs and wireless internet access for the public.
