Aerial Anarchists is a 1911 British silent science fiction film directed by Walter R. Booth.

It is the third and final film in Booth's science fiction series seeking to present a picture of futuristic aerial warfare. It followed on from Aerial Torpedo and Aerial Submarine and is the first real science fiction series made in the United Kingdom. The story focuses on an attack against London by a fleet of airships from an unknown country.

It has been suggested by sources including www.silentsf.com that this film is based upon the E. Douglas Fawcett novel Hartmann the Anarchist
