Invest in the movies!
No, not by going to a movie, or investing in big studio companies, but really invest a little cash into a local filmmakers movie budget. Be very clear that it is an investment, therefore you should get something in return – percentage of profit, prize money, distibution deals, etc.

The more people involved, sharing the financial burden means that these great stories can finally be told!
