  1. 1) comma after "Utah" -- synonym you chose is a good one.

    2) OK

    3) "low-budget" is the common phrase; no synonym; also, "have done well" is the regular phrasing used, not "earned well"

    4) Movies such as the documentary March of the Penguins are “indie” films that opened at Sundance and were commercially very successful.

    5) Many notable movies have opened here, nearly half of which are the work of first-time film makers; one is Afghan Star.
