In this retrospective from the perspective of a touristic lens, from Brunei’s first feature film, Gema Dari Menara (1968), up to recently-made Bruneian feature films such as Ada Apa Dengan Rina, Rina 2 and Abdul Zainidi’s short horror trilogy, Dr. Yong Liu discussed the potential of film-induced tourism in Brunei based on the government policy guide and viable co-operation between local filmmakers, the tourism sector, and travel agencies.
