Film Fest features documentaries

The 2012 Rhode Island International Film festival continued Saturday with screenings of three feature-length documentaries, including the Providence Journal's "Coming Home," shown at RISD's Metcalf Auditorium. Journal staff members and Iraq veteran John DiRaimo, who is in the film, joined a discussion.

Saturday's session, "Future Filmmaking: Digital Documentary Bridging Cultures," also included the world premiere of "The White Picket Fence Project," filmed in Kosovo and South Africa, followed by a discussion including filmmaker Valon Ymeri, pictured here with DiRaimo.

Also featured Saturday was the world premiere of Ian Thomas Ash's film "In The Grey Zone," about the Fukushima nuclear meltdown. Ash was on hand.

The six-day festival wraps up Sunday. Find the full festival schedule and ticket info at the festival site.
