Resources for Film Tourism
Earlier this week we posted about a new UNWTO/Netflix report about screen tourism. If this is a topic you’re interested in there are many potential sources than can be used when researching film/movie/screen tourism. Below are some ideas:
Books and ebooks
Using Library Search from the Library web page you can look for ebooks on your topic. Keyword searches for ‘film tourism’, ‘screen tourism’ or ”move tourism’ retrieve several book titles that are available to read online.

This title has a number of chapters on this topic inlcuding:
