Attraction (Fantasia 2017)

In any first contact scenario, there are about ten thousand ways for a great many people to end up dead and only a handful of possibilities where things go well. When a first contact begins with an alien ship crash-landing into the heart of a major city like Moscow, as it does in Attraction, the odds of anything good coming out of it go down considerably. To be fair to the aliens, the crash wasn't their fault -- though already damaged, the ship was still doing all right until the Russian military threw missiles at it.

The colonel & the bureaucrat meet an alien. Nothing like a little first contact.
