  11. 11. 11 GLOBAL FILM TOURISM CONCLAVE: PROMOTING DESTINATIONS THROUGH FILMS OCTOBER 7, 2017 The term ‘Film tourism’ can be defined as a branch of cultural tourism, and it refers to the growing interest and demand for locations which become popular due to their appearance in films and television series. Alternately, Film tourism can also be defined as tourism to a place or a hotel,which has been depicted in a popular film. The interest or pull generated out of seeing a movie scene which in turn pushes the tourist influx of a particular region up is a roundabout way of marketing, but has a larger impact on more dedicated audiences than direct advertisements. Film tourism can be defined from two unique perspectives: one, the aspect of producing and shooting motion pictures, and secondly, the tourism activities induced as a result of the movies shot in a location or destination. Powered by the growth of the entertainment industry and the increase in international travel, Film tourism is a growing phenomenon. Both Production and Pre-Production stages involve extensive travel and shooting in exotic outdoor locations. This phase involves expenditure spread across various sectors such as equipment manufacturing to local labour to board and lodge as well as the various clearances that enable film shooting. It has been observed that while the film’s actors are provided five-star accommodations during the production stages, the film crew, spotboys, etc are provided 3-star accommodations. Film tourism results into short term economic benefits to the region in the form of employment, hospitality, transportation, and food and catering. It also enables the host country to experience about diverse culture and nationalities, along with an opportunity to learn technological advancement. Film making consists of various phases: FILM TOURISM STAGES OF FILM MAKING 02 PRE PRODUCTION • Preparation of the project • Planning the project involving site recce, board and lodge etc POST PRODUCTION • Editing • Sound effects • Reshooting various parts of the film PRODUCTION • Filming the project 01

For instance, Pangong Tso lake in Ladakh has become a hot tourist spot ever since the last scene of 3 idiots was shot here. Curiosity-inducing Activity - A country or a group of activities depicted in a movie spur the audience’s curiosity, leading to increase influx of tourists. For instance, Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara increased the HOW DOES A TRAVELER ZERO-IN ON A FILM SHOOTING DESTINATION? propensity of tourists to undertake trip to Spain and explore the Tomatina festival. Personality - Aamir Khan’s portrayal of wrestler Mahavir Phogat in a film that touches upon society in Haryana, societal pressures, women empowerment has increased not just tourism in north Indian states like Haryana but also increased the enrollment of boys and girls in wrestling akhadas. 03

  16. 16. 16 GLOBAL FILM TOURISM CONCLAVE: PROMOTING DESTINATIONS THROUGH FILMS OCTOBER 7, 2017 SCENARIO OF INDIAN FILM TOURISM 06 The Indian film industry is the largest in the world in terms of number of films produced with around 1,500 to 2,000 films produced every year in more than 20 languages. The industry also had the second highest footfalls in the world in 2015 (over 2.1 billion) following China (almost 2.2 billion). Currently, India is gaining traction as a film shooting destination. After the success of India based movies such as Slumdog Millionaire, several international studios are increasingly considering shooting a large portion of their films in India. India has been used as a film shooting site for various Hollywood movies such as The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Million Dollar Arm, The Hundred Foot Journey, Life of Pi, Mission Impossible IV and Jobs. Though India boasts of a large number of films and theatre admissions, the Indian film industry is small with respect to other global industries in terms of revenue. The gross realization of Indian film industry is $2.1 billion versus gross realization of film industry in US and Canada is $11 billion even though they produce only 700 films as opposed to 1500+ films produced in India. This is mainly due to low ticket realizations and occupancy levels, lack of quality content, and rampant piracy. Though Indian film fraternity and government have taken a stand against piracy but Piracy continues to haunt film fraternity with dire consequences. Historically, the film industry in India has grown at a CAGR of over 10%. Source: Deloitte Report - Economic Contribution of the Indian Motion Picture and Television Industry
  17. 17. 17 GLOBAL FILM TOURISM CONCLAVE: PROMOTING DESTINATIONS THROUGH FILMS OCTOBER 7, 2017 Currently, the film industry grosses total revenue of INR 138 billion ($2.1 billion). Going forward, the industry is expected to grow at 11.5% year-on-year reaching total gross realization of INR 238 billion ($3.7 billion) by 2020.

  18. 18. 18 GLOBAL FILM TOURISM CONCLAVE: PROMOTING DESTINATIONS THROUGH FILMS OCTOBER 7, 2017 CHALLENGES FACING FILM TOURISM IN INDIA Currently, about 70 approvals and licences from as many as 30 authorities are required for shooting films in India. Delays in the approvals process often results in filmmaker going to other destinations despite the cost advantage in the country. Due to hurdles in obtaining licenses, India has lost at least 18 big budget movies to other locations in the last 4 years. • Central clearances: Shooting of foreign feature films in India requires the prior approval of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) whereas in the case of a documentary, approval of the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) is required. The script of the film has to be approved by the MIB which is a time-consuming process; the Ministry may also depute a liaison officer to facilitate the shooting. • Location specific permissions: Film makers require approvals from authorities in specific locations prior to shooting. • Introduction of Soft Loans: The government should replicate the foreign countries’ film tourism incentives in India. It should provide film makers a short-term loan without charging interest to meet their short-term needs. This would encourage producers to shoot in that particular location, and would catalyse the growth of the industry. • Safety & Security: Safety is also a major concern which needs to be address by the government, as increasing terrorist attacks and political disturbance hinder the growth of the industry. States should undertake various initiatives like setting up surveillance cameras, tourist police, 24*7 help lines, and compulsory registration of tourist guides operators, etc. to ensure safety of the tourists as well as the film crew. These initiatives may be highlighted by the states/ Central Government in various promotional campaigns to project India as a safe and secure tourist destination. • Investment in Infrastructure: Inadequate infrastructure acts as the biggest hindrance to the Indian film tourism industry, and has been affecting its growth since past several years. Bad road conditions; poor connectivity; inadequate air and sea port capacities; and lack of development of modes of transports, like railways, and alternates, like inland water transport and domestic aviation, have been causing delays in the film tourism industry operations.Duetothis,costsperfilmintheIndian film industry increases; and ultimately leads to disturb the planned budget. Therefore, there is an urgent need for investment in infrastructure linking roads, railways and airports, to curtail the losses. • Other approvals: Filmmakers also need to adhere to certain local laws of the region where shooting is to take place in India. The regulators may be various Municipalities and Municipal Corporations, associations of cinematographer, make-up, hair-dresser, etc., and state legislations. • Tax Incentives: It is important to provide tax benefits and other incentives to film makers in order to attract them to a particular location. In India, because of absence or limited incentives, film makers prefer to shoot at foreign locations over Indian locations. Ministry of Tourism must regulate its policies to promote film tourism, and hence tourism in the country. Initiatives such as exemption or refund of VAT, rebate in production cost, free premiers, reduction or exemption of entertainment tax, etc. will certainly make a huge difference in Indian film tourism industry. • Often, foreign producers are faced with unclear rules and regulations in terms of obtaining permissions making the process inefficient and expensive. However, the Indian film sector, along with the Government of India and various state governments, is revamping its approvals process as well as looking to incentivise local film making through the establishment of an India Film Commissions and the Film Facilitation Office. Both these initiatives have been recently announced as part of the Make in India campaign in the film sector. Approvals Required for Film Shooting: Location Relevant Authority Sensitive areas of Jammu and Kashmir, North-east India or border belts Ministry of Home Affairs City/town/village District Magistrate and Police authorities Forest State Forest Department Historical Site Archaeological Survey of India Defence Area Ministry of Defence Airport Airport Director Railway station/ Train Railway Board and State Railway Zone

  27. 27. 27 GLOBAL FILM TOURISM CONCLAVE: PROMOTING DESTINATIONS THROUGH FILMS OCTOBER 7, 2017 INTRODUCTION BnBNation is an an aggregator of bed & breakfast accommodations across India. Our primary strategy is to unify the bed and breakfast accommodation business, started by the Govt. of India as a part of “Incredible India” theme, into a seamless one-stop shop for domestic and foreign tourists to search, book, pay, and review the Indian homely stay experience and return home with fond memories of the local culture, cuisine and warm hospitality of the hosts. We believe, with the special provision given to the bed and breakfast (BnB) accommodation by the government, BnBs can be a disruptor in the hospitality sector as it has the potential not only to turn homeowners into entrepreneurs, but bring forth a 3 or 5 star hotel stay experience at the price of a 1-star hotel. Having understood the pain points of the incoming tourists, BnB owners and GoI, we can implement the technology and processes to amalgamate a robust solution to solve the same and generate wealth for these stakeholders and for the tourism industry as a whole. We also provide our guests a culturally immersive experience in India by combining their stay in an Indian home with a Indian chef or a yoga instructor or an Indian classical dance teacher, on request. This helps the traveler gather the intangible cultural heritage of India and take home an unforgettable experience. At BnBNation we also provide adventure packages to exotic places of India. Whether it is the pristine beaches of Andaman and Nicobar Islands or the Pangong lake in Leh-Ladakh, our corporate clients have boasted of a brilliant stay and life-changing experience.
