Jallywood or Tamil cinema in Sri Lanka is not as developed as Sinhala cinema or its Indian counterpart, the Tamil cinema of Kodambakkammarker, Chennaimarker, Tamil Nadumarker. This is especially due to the high production rates of the influential commercial Tamil films from Tamil Nadumarker, India and the long run ethnic civil war in Sri Lanka. Tamils contributed significantly to Sinhala cinema as well as Indian Tamil cinema, also known as Kollywood. Only a few Tamil language films were produced in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka. Earlier Tamil movies produced were all most destroyed or unrecovered due to civil war. It is called as Jallywood referring Jaffna's Hollywood.
