Our guest this morning is Randy Berler. Randy is the founder of The South Bay Film Society.

Originally from Mineola, NY, Randy attended the University of Wisconsin at Madison and received as MS in Urban and Regional Planning and during that time ran a film society.

Until 1980, he was a Natural Resources and Land Use Planner for the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission.

He returned to school and graduated in 1983 with an MFA from the School of Cinema Arts at the University of Southern California and spent the next few years as an editor on non-theatrical films.

He worked as a Planner for the City of Redondo Beach from 1985 to 2008, ultimately becoming the Planning Director.

He retired in 2009 and just this past year founded The South Bay Film Society.

The South Bay Film Society was created to bring the best of new foreign and independent films to the big screen in the South Bay.

They screen films shortly after they play art house theaters in West Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and Pasadena and well before the films are available on DVD.

They hold discussions after screenings and hope through these film events to foster connections and friendships between people in the South Bay interested in film and the arts.
