Motivation, Authenticity & Displacement in the Film-induced Tourism Experience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This Chapter introduces what tthe authors refer to as ‘displacement theory’ within the larger phenomenon of film-induced tourism, exploring the inherent implications, opportunities and challenges for economic development that this implies for film tourism destination managers. In other words, films are not always shot in the place they are portraying on screen; it is not unusual for a film to be made in a completely different country from that it portrays. This form of displacement creates issues of authenticity and implications as to where the tourist influenced by such a film will choose to visit and the experiences they have. The authors explore the motivations and experiences of film tourists at different locations and, as a consequence, propose a model that can form the basis for recommendations as to how industry can maximise future potential from film-induced tourism, especially when displacement occurs, in order to enhance the tourist experience.
