The Arcadian is an American science fiction feature film set in a post-apocalyptic world. Plot elements have not been revealed, but official press releases have stated, "The Arcadian follows “The Lighthouse Keeper” on a story of revenge and redemption in a strange future world reminiscent of wild 1970s pop sci-fi. The visual world of The Arcadian is an homage to the work of underground illustrators while creating something that is both unique and distinct."



No release date has been specified. Principal photography ceased in November 2009 and post-production was scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2010.[1] It was released on April 28, 2011 in the United Kingdom.


Production on the Arcadian took place across the United States and Canada, notably several areas of coast in Nova Scotia were used for background plates and set pieces. Second unit production involved local area crews.[2]

Additionally, the film was shot entirely on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera.[3]
