Space Faring Civilisation Films (SFC Films) encourages filmmakers to make optimistic Sci-Fi and to provide more optimistic Sci-Fi content to Fans. It is created by Masoud Varjavandi t/a Unity Productions, who is a filmmaker in Canberra Australia.
Masoud created this website originally to highlight his own optimistic Sci-Fi projects, as he grows as a filmmaker, and to create an audience. However SFC Films has now evolved into resources for any filmmaker who wants to create optimistic Sci-Fi, and for fans to enjoy a diverse and ever growing Optimistic Sci-fi content.
The ultimate intent is for SFC Films to be the central hub for Optimistic Sci-Fi, but we are taking small steps. The pieces are falling in place slowly but surely.
“What we imagine we tend to create.” So let’s imagine a wondrous and better world. A world where human beings are an Ever Advancing Civilisation towards a Space Faring Civilisation.

What is Optimistic Sci-Fi
Science fiction literature has been around for centuries, in one form or another, looking at possibilities of what the future holds and exploring the unknown. Modern day Sci-Fi is deemed to have started with Mary Shelley novel “Frankenstein”. It was a turning point in literature where fantasy took inspiration from science and was the main plot instrument in the story. Since then we have had great sci-fi classics and sci-fi authors bringing us wondrous stories of exploring the unknown, and the human condition, with science as the main driver in the story. In recent decades a new form of science fiction has been flourishing, it is commonly known as Optimistic Science Fiction. A type of science fiction that still explores the wondrous unknown, and the human condition, but it does so with a positive view of the future. It’s not about ignoring the negatives, or the injustices, but a vision where human beings progress continuously and solve problems with compassion, love, justice and science.
In contrast to the many apocalyptic and dystopian futures depicted in much of current science fiction, Optimistic Sci-Fi seeks to inspire, provide a vision of hope and incite the imagination into alternative more positive futures.
