This film is made by India.

As it refers to India, the whole country, it would (usually) mean that the film was made by the Indian Government, like propaganda...

This film is made in India.

Normally, this should be what you are trying to say. It means that the location (country) of the film was shot in India.

    @user124234 made by refers to the people who made the film. Example: Batman was made by Christopher Nolan On the other hand, made in refers to the location Example: Batman was made in USA (USA is the filming location, Nolan is the director or maker) – Rohcana Sep 8 '15 at 11:19

Who made the film? Indians? Then, it should be...

The film is made by Indians

The string made in India goes more with something being produced/manufactured in India.

This pen is made in India.

However, made in India could possibly mean that the shooting was done in India. But then, we have better way to say that...

This film was shot in India.
