Twentieth Century Fox cranks out the big blockbusters, but its sister distribution arm, Fox Searchlight Pictures, specializes in indie films and British imports that are more likely to pick up Oscars than hundreds of millions at the box office.

Founded in 1994, the company marks its anniversary with a Blu-ray boxed set that makes an ideal holiday gift.

The Fox Searchlight Pictures 20th Anniversary Collection features 20 films in high-def, including The Full Monty, Boys Don't Cry, Crazy Heart, The Descendants, Juno, and The Last King of Scotland.
