Tony Reeves at ITB Berlin, 2008
Tony Reeves is a lifelong movie fan, and author of the Worldwide Guide to Movie Locations. The book was the culmination of eight years research – watching films, videos and, later, DVDs, as well as trawling through endless magazines, studio presspacks and film ephemera, and travelling the globe to seek out those favourite movie backdrops.
The book is now in its third edition. He has since brought out Movie London, a guide to film locations around the UK capital.
Tony has worked in publishing for over 30 years. He has written for the magazines Time Out (London), TravelBug and SFX, and appeared on numerous radio and TV programmes, including The Steve Wright Show (BBC Radio 2), Channel 5 News, The Robert Elms Show (BBC Radio London), BBC World Service and BBC Radio 4's flagship Today programme. He contributed to Trends and Issues in Global Tourism (2009).
He has given talks on film tourism at Leeds University, ITB in Berlin (Internationale Tourismus-Börse, the world's leading travel trade show), the Ischia Film Festival, Italy, and Trollhattan Talks in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In 2010, he put together the Brit Flick Pilgrimage (a road tour of iconic British film locations), in association with VisitBritain and Vauxhall Motors.
