IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

Essential Sci-Fi Collection

As a genre, Science Fiction traces its roots back to the dawn of modern science in the 17th Century. Following on the heels of the Age of Reason, the Enlightenment and the Industrial Revolution, advances in science and technology took on a newfound importance in modern life. With the development of film and special effects, Science Fiction was an early favorite for both filmmakers and audiences. George Melies's A Trip To The Moon (1902) and Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927) remain an iconic examples of early Sci-Fi.

Since those early days, Sciene Fiction has remained a perennially popular genre with film fans. And while it might seem like in order to make a Sci-Fi film, you need the backing of a major Hollywood studio, there are a number of groundbreaking independent films that have proven just the opposite. All of the films in this collection were made by independent funding (with the notable exception of Solaris. which was funded by the Soviet government). Many of them were made on shoestring budgets that force them to be extra creative. George Lucas made THX-1138 for exactly $777,777.77, Mad Max was done on a budget of $400,000, Darren Aaronofsy (Pi) made due with $60,000 and Primer was made for an astounding $7,000. It just goes to show that you don't need a big budget to make a big film.

No independent film collection is complete without a healthy dose of Sci-Fi and if you haven't seen any of these indie classics, now's your chance!
