What can we deduce from last year's indie films that premiered in festivals, then went on to do decent theatrical box office (CITY ISLAND, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP, WINTER'S BONE)? What can be said about the miscalculated flops? Are there lessons to be learned from modest breakouts like GASLAND and TINY FURNITURE, success stories that can't be judged by mere ticket sales? In these economically unstable yet creatively exciting times, are there quantifiable new definitions for success? (LEVEL: Advanced)
