Film tourism filming locations as travel destinations

Since Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings »set jetting« has become an international travel phenomenon. What inspires film viewers to travel to a place that they have seen on screen? What defines the drawing power of a filming location and how does it influence a film's commercial success and the travel experience? Focussing on urban film tourism, this panel addresses these and other questions regarding location choice, place branding, destination marketing and on-screen authenticity.

The discussion will be held in English.
