Sundance 2013: Locals Best Bets Jan. 24 | 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

It's an icy Salt Lake City day, but the shows go one for local Sundancers. ---

Tonight's Ogden offering is one of the festival's best: the delightful coming-of-age comedy The Way, Way Back. The only thing that doesn't make it the obvious choice for absolutely everyone with a Locals Express Pass is the fact that it's not possible to see both that film and the flat-out best of the fest, Before Midnight. I think I may have written a few words about that one already.

If you've been lucky enough to catch those already, consider some of the promising documentaries, including a look at orcas in captivity in Blackfish, and director Alex Gibney's exploration of WikiLeaks in We Steal Secrets.
