The biggest, first and most vital step is to shoot at the film frame rate. Here in NTSC-Land that's 23.976 frames per second, aka 23.98, aka 24p.
If the work is for broadcast at 1080, use the add 3:2 pulldown switch in the AE render settings. If it's broadcast at 720, just nest the 23.976 comp in a 720, 59.94 comp. If its for the web, leave it at 23.976.
Don't forget about color grading. You can coax a bit more out of video to better emulate film stock. Add a little noise to emulate film grain... but don't get carried away with it!
