"Tourism to places where movies and television series have been filmed is not a new phenomenon, having its roots in literary tourism. Whilst there is a growing recognition of the significance of film as a motivator for tourism, studies in this field are limited. However, film is more than a simple place promotion tool. Representing over five years of study into film-induced tourism, this publication considers aspects of tourism to film studios as well as to film sites." "Genres and styles of film considered include popular fictional movies, cult movies, television series and animation, and covers destinations from New York to Scotland, England and rural Australia. The potential of film-induced tourism as a motivator is ecplored, along with its more negative effects, particularly in relation to small communities. The study of this complex field draws on elements of sociology and psychology, destination marketing, community development and strategic planning."--Jacket.
