The study aims to examine and discuss how local residents’ perceptions and attitudes towards the impacts of film tourism at a film tourism destination have changed, been transformed and/or adjusted over time. The findings suggest that during the film production stage the local communities generally had positive perceptions and attitudes towards the impacts of film tourism and anticipated further positive indirect effects of the film’s production in future. However, their generally positive perceptions and attitudes gradually began to change during the post-production effects (PPEFs) phase, leaving them with mixed perceptions and attitudes.
