Ref. HAR2016-77734-P. Funded by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities (MICIU) of the Government of Spain.
Fiction cinema is a communicative manifestation that, due to its impact on imagination, memory and spectatorial feelings, motivates the desire to know the real spaces shown on the screen, determining the choice of tourist destinations. Such circumstance has led to the pairing between the tourism industry and commercial cinema for the mutual benefit.
The general objective is to analyse the way in which Spanish fiction cinema acts as a tourist promoter of the geographical space and the autochthonous cultural heritage. The specific objective is to establish the form, the extent and the socio-economic consequences with which Spanish fiction cinema has been using indigenous spaces over time as a tourist attraction.
