Christian Faure's "A Love To Hide," about a gay couple in Nazi occupied Europe who offer protection to a Jewish refugee during the war, took two top prizes at the Miami Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, which closed on April 30. The film won both the juried and audience awards for best fiction feature. The award for best juried documentary went to Malcolm Ingram's "Small Town Gay Bar," about two gay bars trying to survive in the homophobic bible belt of North East Mississippi. Other festival prizes include the audience favorite short, which was awarded to Shay Sellers for "The Black Box," a personal account of the filmmaker's transition from teen to womanhood, and the audience favorite documentary award for "Laughing Matters...More!", directed by Andrea Meyerson about four lesbian comedians. Ramon Salazar received the special jury award for Originality of Vision for his film "20 Centimeters." [Tamara Schweitzer]
