It depends what you consider to be "filmic." It is very subjective and hence hard to answer.

If you are looking for film-like gamma response, then use the cine gamma curve. If you are looking for as much dynamic range as possible, lower the knee and stretch the blacks.
Colour-wise, experiment with the scene files available, and don't be afraid to play with the settings. Many people have achieved a pretty close "Kodak" look with my "WARM" scene file. You may want to try that as well.

I set it to -3 for most of the last film I shot. That doesn't necessarily mean you should. Testing is the best bet.
I've done alot of testing under different conditions and for the most part I was using completely controlled lighting, and I carefully controlled my ratios.
