AIFF 2012: What To Watch? (Most) Films In Competition Saturday

Here's a list of the films in competition I noticed that were being shown today.  I haven't checked the animated films and there may be more shorts I missed.  The Festival's hard copy guides are available and make finding your way around the conference much easier.

I'm putting these up in order of when they are being shown.

Four of the seven features in competition are being shown, but most of them will be showing at overlapping times.  You can see Confine (2pm) and one of the others.  They'll all be shown again.

Two of the four documentaries in competition are being shown.
