This research aimed to investigate the factors that influence audiences' decisions to watch Thai films and examined the tactics, strategies, and economic value creation processes of the Thai film industry. The researcher studied the overview of content creation strategies in the film industry and the revenue of Thai films related to the economic values’ creation using sample groups selected using a simple random sampling method and comprising the basic information of Thai films originally released in 2019-2020. The findings were as follows:
1.The most influential aspect of content strategy on the decision to watch Thai films was the use of engaging narrative techniques (mean = 4.05, SD = 0.80). There were additional factors that convinced audiences to watch a film, such as captivating characters, unconventional screenplay structures and unusual image presentations that were impossible to encounter in daily life or were related to tourism.
2.The content strategy of Thai films had impacted on economic value creation in terms of promoting tourism (mean = 4.05, standard deviation = 0.85).
3.The situation of Thai films during 2019–2020 (including the Covid-19 pandemic) revealed that the content strategy of Thai films was crucial for the stimulation and recovery of the Thai film industry (mean = 4.05, standard deviation = 0.91). In addition, contemporary Thai films have had to adapt to the Covid-19 pandemic and the current trends of Thai films affected by digital media, as of dramas, series etc. Consequently, entrepreneurs and film producers must keep up with the situation and adaptations.
