The Institute for Tourism, Travel & Culture at the University of Malta, together with partners of project FAMOUS, has launched a mobile app allowing travellers to explore UNESCO World Heritage Sites featured in films, TV and online series in an easy-to-use and fun way.
The MovieTravel app guides visitors through six breath-taking routes for UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Europe that have appeared in films and series and hosting film festivals. Valletta, Tarragona, Lyon, Genoa and the Peloponnese are the sites presented on the Movie Travel app through an innovative audio-visual experience that brings the user closer to the historical, artistic and cultural heritage of these places. The app provides film and series lovers the opportunity to discover the UNESCO destinations featured through screenings, panels and cinema-related events.
MovieTravel, developed by the University of Malta together with partners in the EU-funded COSME project FAMOUS, is available for Android and iOS devices. The other local partners are Heritage Malta, Spazju Kreattiv, the Malta Film Commission and the Valletta Film Festival.
