The Munich Feature Film Cluster: The Degree of Global Integration and Explanations for its Relative Success
In this paper we assess the role that a secondary feature film cluster can play in an industrial sector largely dominated by the major Hollywood studios. In order to do this we proceed in two steps. We first evaluate as to how Munich-based firms are integrated into the production, distribution, financing and technological development of globally successful feature films. Then we investigate the factors that explain the relative economic success of this regional industry. Here we argue that major corporate actors that established a core group within the cluster have turned the industry towards specialized niche products and have been significantly supported by public policy measures.
