I'm no expert but it would seem prudent to ensure the contract included some expectation of performance. In other words, the film must be distributed to X outlets and shown Y times within Z weeks or months.

Here's a real-life example. Canadian broadcasters buy exclusive rights to distribute American TV shows. Some of them have not bothered to distribute the shows via their streaming services (even though they have the right to do so). The talk is now to enforce a "use or lose it" stance. If you're not going to stream it then you forfeit this right and it can be acquired by someone else.
Looking for views!
