BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - A documentary that hits close to home was screened Thursday night at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival.
It takes an in-depth look at the consequences of cyber-bullying - consequences that included the suicide of Williamsville teen Jamey Rodemeyer after he was bullied online over his sexuality. The film documents similar cases and shows that his death was not an isolated case.
Daniel Rage of the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival said, "We found out that if people actually come and see it, they learn a little about what's possibly going on in their home or around their community."
Producer Les Ottolenghi says he made the film to help people become aware of cyberbullying and not be bystanders. 'Submit: The Documentary' was screened Thursday night at the Market Arcade Theatre.
The film festival continues through Sunday.
