The 2nd edition of the book Film-Induced Tourism by Sue Beeton treats the topic in an all-embracing manner, discussing a number of aspects of film-induced tourism and its various forms, reflecting on the impacts of film-induced tourism, and including recommendations for community planning in relation to this type of tourism, differentiating between movies and TV series, highlighting the power of film in destination marketing, etc. The book is divided in four parts, and offers both theoretical grounds as well as practical examples of various topics discussed in the book.
Part 1 gives an introduction to film-induced tourism, offering the reader perspectives of looking at this topic. It explains the relationship between film and tourism, which is visible in the variety of film-induced tourism types, and which is also reflected in defining film-induced tourism. Part 2 focuses on on-location film-induced tourism, introducing the topics of destination marketing, community and tourism impacts. Part 3, on the other hand, discusses off-location film studio tourism, based on the development of a film studio theme-park model. Conclusions and directions for further study are presented in Part 4.
Owing to its scientific grounds, the book is a must-have for researchers in the field of creative industries and cultural tourism development, but its simplicity of language complemented with good practice examples makes it highly recommendable also to cultural tourism practitioners and planners.
