Bear in mind that especially for entertainment-related ventures, the credibility of the people involved is going to be a major factor in the ability to raise capital, as will be the strength of the intellectual property which you secure. If you don't have experience (e.g. a proven track record) with foreign pre-sales and/or film marketing and distribution, you may need to recruit someone to the team who can fill this gap.
Look at this sites... Crowfunding is be coming popular.
You need a good business plan, or, at a minimum, an 1-2 page executive summary. This will outline your ask, the major financial numbers, a summary of the business, and the projected returns for investors.
