snow-teaseThe Day It Snowed In Miami, a documentary showcasing South Florida’s role in the gay rights movement, has won a 2014 Aurora Award.

The documentary, by director Joe Cardona in association with the Miami Herald Media Company, was recognized for “great technical execution, good variety of material sources, clear, in-depth interviews.”
