This Masters dissertation considers the tourism niche of film-induced tourism (FIT) within the broader realm of heritage and cultural tourism (HCT). It sets out to identify the scope of different types of FIT, focusing specifically on “on-location film-induced tourism” (OLFIT). The genesis of FIT in the related niche of literary tourism is explored, thereby explaining the history and development of FIT. Furthermore, this dissertation sets out to identify key elements that are recognised as necessary for the functioning of OLFIT as well as those factors that determine the success and sustainability of OLFIT endeavours. Both the elements and factors necessary for OLFIT’s success and sustainability are elucidated with the use of international case studies, including The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies which are regarded as best-practice. A flow diagram-model has been devised to illustrate the interconnectivity of these elements and factors and can be applied to other situations. This is followed by an examination of the film and tourism industry in South Africa, thereby evaluating the potential of the country as an OLFIT destination.

This paper is particularly focused on film-induced tourism investigation as well as its cultural promotion and cultural change effect that impact on both the tourist destinations and the tourist demands. The case studies include the famous Transylvania, Romania as well as the two comparative destinations in Southeast Asia namely Bali in Indonesia, and Penang in Malaysia. Although tourism planners have limited control over the content of the films produced in the respective destinations and how the destinations are being portrayed in films, it is reflected in our studies that, the imaginary, visual representations of the destinations, albeit negative or distorted from their original identities, are still useful and viable to promote the tourist destinations. The three discussion cases form up the stratification of multiple stages in terms of implementing film-induced tourism strategies to promote their destinations, spanning from one of the oldest film-induced tourist destinations Tr...

This paper aims at a qualitative-based empirical investigation of how TV series influences the economic structure and stimulate the publicity of places where it was filmed and which are about to be considered as a visitor attraction in domestic tourism. In order to reach this objective, we have chosen Bozuyuk, a small town of Mugla and located in the south-west part of Turkey. Within the scope of the field study, three excursions were arranged to the town of Bozuyuk where the series was shot, and an on-site observation was made by witnessing both interviews and shooting of the series. Despite the fact that the importance of shooting a series in the region was not understood by the local people in the beginning, all the participants, whom we made interviews with, empasized the contribution of the series in terms of the local economy and publicity. There are some tradesmen approaching the issue particularly in terms of cost-benefit analysis in the light of environment and sustainabili...

The need for a thorough investigation into how the film induced tourism phenomenon can be maximised upon through stakeholder collaboration was particularly evident from the literature review undertaken. It showed that there was a significant research gap in the successful collaboration of this relatively new phenomenon into a destination’s marketing activities. To proceed to the next stage of research, the key tourism and film stakeholders behind the Yorkshire brand were interviewed as the main objective of this research is to discover to what extent the integration of film and tourism has actually occurred in Yorkshire.Unfortunately, in Yorkshire, the tourism and film stakeholders do not work together, even when a big budget film is being produced there. This represents a failed valuable opportunity when the brand could be successfully integrated into any film promotion packages.

Film induced tourism or film tourism is a result of destination image formation and development through film industry with collaboration of other destination image stakeholders (policy makers, private and public investors, scholars and etc.). This postmodern tourism phenomenon links film driven emotions to the filming locations and at the same time is responsible for positive or negative destination image formation. In Lithuanian academic discourses this theory, as well as the impact of films towards local tourism, was not yet recognized. Therefore this article, according to the collected film tourism theoretical material, analyses Lithuanian potential for film induced tourism and how can it be turned into a destination promotion strategy. The conclusions show that there are real opportunities for Lithuania to use film industry as a tool of destination image formation, however it needs further analysis, a clear strategic plan, strong collaboration with Baltic region and the use of two recommendation models, which were presented in this paper. This research can be used for dynamic analysis as well as strategic planning in any specific institution related to filmmaking, tourism and regional image formation.

This study aims to (a) identify the relationship between travel motivation and popular media (mainly films or TV programs), (b) examine the relationship between destination images and popular media as an information source, and (c) investigate the influence of popular media on destination’s decision-making process. The relationship is focused on three aspects: motivation, destination image, and the decision-making process for tourists. This study employed a self-administered questionnaire survey. The questionnaire was composed of (i) respondents’ motivation and general information about their visit to the destination (Jeju Island in Korea), (ii) attributes of the film-induced tourism of their visit to the destination, and (iii) respondents’ socio-demographic elements. A correlation analysis and a standard multiple regression analysis were employed. The results discovered that there is a significant relationship (a) between a destination and popular media, (b) between destination ima...

This paper discusses the topic of film-induced tourism in Portugal from the perspective of the Portuguese destination marketing organizations. As research concerning film tourism in Portugal was unavailable due to the novelty of the topic, primary research was developed through online survey questionnaires, case studies and interviews. The primary research conducted found that Portugal has all the necessary resources and attributes required to develop film tourism; however destination marketing organizations and film commissions need to work together to ensure that films are promoted in a way which can be beneficial to both the tourism sector and the film industry.
