Scenes from new movie being shot in North Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A film crew from Los Angeles was in town this weekend shooting scenes for a movie called “The Runner.”

The movie is about a recovering alcoholic who turns to running as a way of confronting his past.

Traffic was backed up around Elmwood Avenue and Grote Street around 10:30 a.m. Saturday morning as crews began shooting.

The director, Justin Berardi, was born and raised in Amherst, but now lives in California.

“The Runner” will debut next year at several film festivals around the country. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
