La Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon), is considered to be the first Science Fiction genre film.

The reportedly 14 minute film was released on September 1, 1902 and created by a French filmmaker, George Méliès. A few moments of the film have degraded over time. This clip runs 11:49.

This film was originally a silent film that was narrated to viewers from a script. The story was loosely based on concepts from popular science fiction of the time, “The First Men in the Moon” by H.G. Wells and “From the Earth to the Moon” by Jules Verne.
