What a Film Distributor is looking for. Tip #1
A spectacular screenplay goes a long way. Screenplay is vital. The director, the actors, the equipment and the grind is all wasted if the story is useless. The hard work needs to be put in right from when the pen touches the paper - this ensures that the story is good enough to sell.

dandancantfly: i’m seriously curious, i don’t think i’ve ever read an article or seen a tv segment that lauds over out home grown talent the way the Americans and Europeans do with their artists.

Yes it is beneficial for them to support mainstream movies. This is a big money maker for our country and generates economic growth. However, if they support smaller projects additionally, this could also be beneficial for economic growth. They are not giving young and fresh talent the opportunity to get their foot in the door!
