Hi Jim, and welcome to Yahoo!Answers: ===UPDATE Edit - see below===
You really didn't ask a well-phrased Question, for your first attempt here on Y!A.
Video8 is an older videocassette format, not to be confused with Super 8 or 8mm home-movie films (which may be what happened with the first Answerer).
Films, shot with mechanical "movie cameras", are projected or shown using a film projector using purely optical means.
Videos (which shouldn't be called "films", to avoid confusion) are shown using either the camcorder it was shot with or via a VCR of the same type (in your case Video8 or Hi-8).
Neither Video8 nor Hi-8 models have been made for many years (these are analog tape formats, and everything has gone digital), so if you are asking where to get a Video8 camera, places like eBay, Craig's List, or a local pawn shop or thrift store would be the best sources.
Sony introduced the Video8 cassette format, so most of the used camcorders you'll find will be Sony Handycams. The 2nd generation of these "8mm videocassette" models was called "Hi-8" which had better picture and added the option of digital PCM audio. The good news for you is that either model can show your older Video8 cassettes. There are even "newer" (but still discontinued) Digital-8 cameras and VCRs that can play the older analog 8mm videocassettes.
If this doesn't answer the reason behind your post, then please use the "Additional Details" link on the Action Bar below your Question text (mouse-over the blue "pencil icon" for the Edit menu). We can update our answers based on your feedback.
hope this helps,
Thanks for the feedback, Jim. Video8 & Hi-8 camcorders are usually cheaper to find than an 8mm VCR (although when colleges and companies were selling off their 8mm video editing gear, I found Sony decks for under-$100). You are better-off buying a Hi-8 model (whether camcorder or VCR deck), unless you are positive your broken camera was just "Video8". Hi-8 units can play back either kind.
And don't get confused into thinking a VHS-C cassette adapter will work for your tapes to play in a regular VHS deck. Those were for a totally different camcorder format & tape width.
