Recently outside of our borders there is a new concept emerging within cultural tourism called film tourism. Although this phenomenon is growing internationally, many tourism organizations have been slow to take advantage of the potential benefits of this new form of cultural tourism. This paper attempts to conceptually define film tourism, and later analyze the current tourist profile and the level of general knowledge of the tourist typology through a survey realized at the 5th International Cultural Tourism Trade Fair, in which 484 subjects participated. Both factors allow us to evaluate the potential for future development, especially when considering the strength of the domestic tourism and the increasing level of demand, as well as the increase demand of substantial urban and cultural products by foreigners. In this context, it is recommended that the development of new cultural tourism products that can provoke new emotions and feelings, contribute to a greater differentiation of a destination.
