Abstract

Film geography can be traced to humanistic and Marxist critiques of the dominance of quantitative and regional geography in the 1960s through the 1980s. This article examines, geography's past engagement with film and focuses principally on approaches to film and debates around usage of film in geographic research. Following this, the article loosely frames current research trends around the concepts of 'cultural studies' and 'cultural economy.' Where a cultural-studies approach has focused on performative logics, scripting, 'ways of seeing', and hermeneutics, a cultural-economy approach focuses on film as part of an industrial complex responsible for creating culturalized goods laden with symbolic meaning. Film geography is an exciting, burgeoning new subfield that combines film and cultural studies with cultural, social, political, and economic geography.
