Punjabi Cinema is the Punjabi language film industry in the states of Punjab in India and Pakistan. It was generally called Punjwood, a portmanteau of Punjab and Hollywood; however, since 2012, Pollywood came into prominence after repeated use in the media.

As of 2013, P.F.I. ( Punjabi Film Industry) has produced between 900 and 1,000 movies. The average number of releases per year in the 1970s was nine; in the 1980s, eight; and in the 1990s, six. In 1995, the number of films released was 11; it plummeted to seven in 1996 and touched a low of five in 1997.

The fate of Punjabi film industry changed in 2002 when Harbhajan Mann's first movie “JEE AAYAN NU” hit the screens. This was the first Punjabi film to be appreciated by audiences all over the world. It completed 50 days on the big-screen and was declared a super-hit. Punjabi’s all over the world praised Harbhajan Mann’s vision and courage. With renewed interest, the Punjabi film industry has seen a revival with more releases every year featuring bigger budgets, home grown stars as well as bollywood actors of Punjabi descent taking part. Again, in 2012, "JATT AND JULIET" re-shaped the commercial space that Punjabi film industry was known for. Where films grossed an average 3-5 Crores at the box office, Jatt and Juliet managed to gross 35 Crores at the box office (worldwide), becoming the biggest blockbuster of Punjabi Cinema.

Similarly, 2013 was a landmark year for Punjabi film industry with 8 clean Hits in the first 7 months of the year, making it the most prosperous regional film industry of India.
