Sundance 2013: Locals Best Bets 1/19 | Buzz Blog
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. DONATE

In a return of our annual tradition, here are suggestions for Locals Quick Pass holders and other Utah-based Sundancers regarding where to focus their attentions. ---

Today's offerings include a film already given a stamp of approval by the Academy Awards: No, a nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. Music documentaries are also out in force, from the profile of backup singers Twenty Feet from Stardom to the look at controversial jailed rockers in Pussy Riot -- A Punk Prayer.

If you're interested in exploring other kinds of controversy, the U.S. Competition documentary After Tiller takes a great clear-eyed look at providers of late-term abortions. And Blue Caprice attempts to dramatize the fact-based story behind the Washington, D.C., "Beltway Sniper."
