Kevin Bryce, P.E.I. filmmaker

Kevin Bryce's film All These Flowers received a gold standing at the recent Spotlight Documentary Film Awards. (

A filmmaker originally from Summerside, P.E.I., recently received international recognition for his latest documentary about bipolar disorder.

Kevin Bryce directed All These Flowers, which won a gold standing at the Spotlight Documentary Film Awards earlier this month.

The film follows several people diagnosed with bipolar disorder.              

"This is an illness that is actually quite common," said Bryce, who grew up on P.E.I. and is now based in the U.S.

"I want [audiences] to walk away feeling like they're not alone and that there is hope. I have had several people email me after going to screenings, just kind of encouraged that they can actually move into a place of recovery."

Bryce is back in P.E.I. for the holidays and will host a free screening of All These Flowers Monday at 7 p.m. at Centre 150 in Summerside.
