Sometimes known as science fiction, this popular genre appeals to the ‘Suspension of Disbelief.’ A film can be classified as belonging to this genre if it deals with one or more of the following themes: science fiction, technology, space travel, and future ideas.

Since the beginning of cinema, science fiction films have existed, with George Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon (1902) being the first real worldwide blockbuster. Special effects became a top emphasis in these films as new computer technology became available. Famous directors in this genre include Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, and James Cameron. ET: The Extra-Terrestrial and the Star Wars franchise are two well-known examples of films.

Expectations of the Audience:

Heroes \sAliens

Planets that are far away

Quests that are impossible to complete

Fantastic locations

Science fiction can be classified into the following categories:

Space travel: This film genre is about adventures, fights, and drama in space. It all started in 1902 with George Méliès’ silent film “Le voyage dans la Lune (English: A trip to the Moon).” The Martian is a contemporary example of a space travel film (2015).

Time travel is a fascinating feature of science fiction that might be considered unique. However, it is currently mostly used to assist in the development of movie storylines and subplots. As the name implies, these films may transport you back or forth in time, and X-Men: Days of Future Past is a fantastic example of a time travel film.


This is an extremely wide genre that may be mixed and matched with other genres. In addition, according to a survey conducted by, drama films are the least expensive to create. Although it was formerly said that drama could not exist as a genre, it exists as a distinct genre.

In the 1970s, the notion of drama films shifted dramatically. Some drama films can elicit an emotional response from the viewer, and a Streetcar Named Desire is an example of a classic drama film.

Expectations of the Audience:

Characters, places, storylines, and life events that are realistic, with great character development driven by a serious narrative or dealing with everyday issues

There isn’t a lot of emphasis on special effects, humour, or action.

A house, a workplace, or a group of individuals compelled to interact daily are examples of settings.
