South Indian International Movie Awards, also known as the SIIMA Awards rewards the artistic and technical achievements of the South Indian film industry.

The ceremony was instituted in 2012 by Vishnuvardhan Induri, the founder of Celebrity Cricket League.[1][2] Local Event Partner for SIIMA 2013 in UAE is Anjan Star Events.[3] The Awards are presented in separate parts on two different days. On the first day the most promising upcoming South Indian film artists are honoured at the Generation Next Awards, while the second day is reserved for the main SIIMA Awards. The Award candidates are nominated by a jury of senior artists and professionals and voted for by public polling.[4] The first SIIMA ceremony was held on June 21-22,2012 at the Dubai World Trade Center.[5]


K. Rosaiah, the present Governor of Tamil Nadu, launched the third FICCI Media Entertainment Business Conclave (MEBC) with a call for a joint and concerted effort at all spheres to make the South Indian film industry number one on par with international standards. During this event, a decision was taken to promote the South Indian film industry on a global scale and to attract the untapped potential of overseas movie goers. The presentation should reflect the growing importance of South Indian cinema as a key world market.

The matter was taken up by entertainment industrialist Vishnuvardhan Induri, who introduced the new international Award function SIIMA.
