If you have not seen the 2016 movie Arrival it's really worth watching 2 or 3 times. The plot is kind of weird to get the first time through. But the movie has really grown on me.
One of the things I like about the movie is the way the whole world responds to first contact by extraterrestrials. I think it really is an accurate portrayal of how human beings would react as a group.

Allow me to point out a logical fallacy in your post:
A) You, Human, have been, and still are in contact with Alien beings since the beginning of your recorded history.
B) Alien species can not make contact with, and can not communicate with, beings whose intelligence is not capable
ot grasping the existence of beings of a higher order of intelligence.
If humans are in contact with aliens, then B) cannot be true. However, if B is true, A cannot be.
