International Conference of Cinema and Tourism
It seems indisputable that the Cinema strongly influences tourism. However, only recently the relationship between cinema and tourism began to be systematic and careful studies by researchers. The creation of strategies for tourism development based on supporting the audiovisual industry and cinematographic production has proven a successful bet. Nevertheless, scientific research on the relationship between cinema and tourism is only now beginning to surface.
These are therefore some of the analytical perspectives that have already been addressed in the framework of the Conference about Cinema and Tourism, particularly in the edition of 2011, with the participation of some of the Europe's leading experts in this field.
In 2011, we will continue on the path of research on this topic, always based on the contribution of some of the best experts in these areas.
