"The Crystal Bear for the best feature-length film goes to
by David Lee Miller
A rare theme which is both current and extremely tragic for young people has been persuasively tackled in this film. We were not only fascinated by the film’s gripping content also the highly original way in which it was made. The protagonist’s loneliness and his longing for love are authentic and awe-inspiring.

Today I learned that "My Suicide" received the Crystal Bear award. I heard the news with true happiness for Steve, Eric, David, Jordan, Gabe and the rest of the fabulous young talent that worked long and hard to have and deserve this success. I guess I paid my dues on this project and I am proud to have given what I could to the film's success. Hopefully, the film will be effective in reducing suicide and commercially successful. Well done, "My Suicide."
