Documentaries are heavy on the schedule, with a dose of frisky romantic comedy as dessert for Salt Lake Sundancers. ---

This afternoon leads off with Me @ the Zoo, a look at YouTube-era fame and infamy that has been getting high marks from festival press. The early evening offers more from the U.S. Documentary competition, with the strongest support going to the profile of a Chinese dissident in Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry.

If there's one sure bet, it's the late evening's screening of Save the Date, one of the genuine charmers from the U.S. Dramatic competition. It's a tale of 20-something romantic complications that manages to be funny, human and insightful without being whiny and self-absorbed.
