List of Hollywood-inspired movie industries

Below is a list of film industries from around the world whose names are inspired by the iconic name of Hollywood–the origin of American film industry.

FYI, Uganda’s film industry is nicknamed Wakaliwood based on Wakaliga, a slum in Uganda’s capital Kampala.

“It is going to be as big as Nollywood, Bollywood or even Hollywood – there’s no reason why not,” writer, director, editor and producer Isaac Nabwana boasted of Uganda’s informal film industry — boldly insisting studios in Nigeria, India and the United States will get a run for their money.
