Lists by WilliamHartPhD
1) Searching my other IMDB lists ("Films & TV Shot in North Carolina in past 30 yrs," "Films Set in North Carolina According to Wikipedia" and "Films Shot in North Carolina But Not Listed on NCFilm.com") and looking for films that had "novel" or "book" listed in the writers section of the IMDB listing. That is, they are based on novels according to IMDB. Excluded plays and comic books. This resulted in a combined list of approximately 40 films.
2) I then went through each of the 40+ films to see if the novel was set in North Carolina (using Amazon, NoveList Plus, Wikipedia, etc.). This resulted in about 10 films. Those excluded films can be found in my list "Films Based on Novels Which Were Shot in NC, but not set in NC".
3) I then went to relevant novels that I found on NoveList Plus (see www.williamhartphd.com/research/kiss-the-girls-research-project/novels-set-in-north-carolina-past-30-years). I confirmed that they were set in NC and then added them to this list, resulting in the 17 films found below.
