Pashtowood (Pashto: پالېوډ) is the term for the film industry based in the city of Peshawar, the provincial capital of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan.[1] It produces Pashto and Urdu language feature films.

The term Pollywood is also used for Indian Punjabi Cinema.[2]

History[edit]

Yousuf Khan Sher Bano (1971) was the first Pashto film made. It starred Badar Munir and Yasmin Khan. Pashto films are made independently and, as such, there is no official website for information about them.[3]
