Lollywood (in Punjabi, Urdu: لالی وُڈlâli vuḍ) is the Urdu and Punjabi-language film industry of Pakistani cinema, based in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Since 1929, Lahore has been the center of Pakistani cinema, producing films in both languages. Since 2007, however, Karachi has largely overtaken Lahore in Urdu film productions. The word "Lollywood" was coined in the summer of 1989 in Glamour magazine as a portmanteau of "Lahore" and "Hollywood", published from Karachi, by gossip columnist Saleem Nasir.

In 2015, only five Punjabi films were made in Lollywood. Punjabi films continued to languish in this year also. Punjabi releases such as Razia Phas Gayi Gundon Main, Shaan's Lahoria tay Pishoria, Gujjar Pooray Dinna Da, Sohna Gujjar and Sami Rawal all failed to make a mark on the box office in Pakistan.
