We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

It seems like only yesterday that Isaac Chung was writing for City Weekly about his experience bringing a short film to Slamdance. Now he's the guy that local film students are looking to as a success story.

Chung will be featured next week as the first Distinguished Young Alumni Lecturer for the University of Utah Film Studies program. On Tuesday, March 10 at 7:30 p.m. at the Fort Douglas Post Theatre, he'll speak in conjunction with a screening of his 2007 documentary Munyurangabo -- about an orphan of the Rwandan genocide -- which played at the Cannes and Toronto film festivals. Other free screenings of Chung's films include his first documentary feature Six Days (about the underground evangelical Christian movement in China) on Sunday, March 8 at 7 p.m. in Orson Spencer Hall's Reed Auditorium; and the work-in-progress Lucky Life on Wednesday, March 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Post Theatre.

*Sigh* They grow up so fast.
