Description
Summary:This book deploys the concept of ‘audiovisual tourism promotion’ to account for the promotional functions performed by a vast array of diverse media texts including tourism films, feature films, digital videos conceived for online circulation, video games and TV commercials. From this point of view, this volume fills a major gap in the literature by providing the first comprehensive critical overview of audiovisual tourism promotion as a distinct media field. In this book, the study of audiovisual tourism promotion is characterised by an interdisciplinary approach which combines film studies, media studies, human geography, sociology, tourism studies, history, postcolonial and gender studies. This book will appeal to a wide range of students and scholars from different disciplines. Dr. Diego Bonelli completed his PhD in Film at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. His primary research interests focus on the relationship between film and tourism promotion. Diego’s work has been published in various film and tourism studies journals including Studies in Australasian Cinema and The Journal of Tourism History. Dr. Alfio Leotta is Senior Lecturer in Film at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. His primary research interests focus on the relation between film and tourism; the globalisation of film production; and fantasy cinema. Dr Leotta is the author of Touring the Screen: Tourism and New Zealand Film Geographies (2011); Peter Jackson (2016); and The Cinema of John Milius (2018)
