The Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival marks its 14th year as one of the top LGBT film festivals in the country with a 10-day festival running April 27-May 6, with screening locations in Miami Beach and Coral Gables. The festival will run more than 65 films, with 15 countries represented. There will be short films, documentaries and full-length features that organizers said support the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities.

As one of the first LGBT film festivals of the calendar year, the Miami event will premier several films. On opening night, the festival presents the inaugural Lavender Heart Award to country singer Chely Wright. One of the films at the festival, "Wish Me Away," is a documentary about Wright's coming out. Other films include "Kawa," another coming-out film, based on the novel, "Nights in the Gardens of Spain" by Witi Ihimaera; the North American premier of "The Adored," a thriller; and "Seventh Gay Adventist," a film that explores the intersection of faith, identity and sexuality.
