The chapter discusses the manifold influences that the advent of digital technologies has had on science fiction filmmaking. Among them are the unprecedented globalization of science fiction cinema, the emergence of short film as a major visual form in science fiction, the appearance of digital aesthetics, and numerous audience-side practices, such as vidding, fan edits, and the mockbuster. Many of these phenomena not only provide new contexts for the production and circulation of science fiction film, but also force a reassessment of the traditional conceptions of the genre and the ways in which it performs its cultural work.

Keywords:   fan edits, globalization, mockbuster, science fiction, short film
