A long time addition to the Indian film industry is Konkani Cinema where films are made in the authentic Konkani language which is a mix blend of Marathi and Sanskrit and is spoken mainly in the Goa, Kerala, Maharashtra, and Karnataka. Konkani films are locally produced in Goa, Kerala, Maharashtra, and Karnataka. Three years ago i.e in 2013 when the Indian film industry celebrated 100 years there was a total of 45 feature films that were brought to light on various forms of media.
Sukhi Konn which is regarded as the first full-length Konkani film was produced by GMB Rodrigues in 1949 but was not released because of reasons that were not mentioned on media. Later on April 24, 1950, was released Mogacho Anvddo which was produced and directed by Jerry Braganza who is a native of Mapusa and that is the reason 24 April is celebrated as Konkani Film Day across Goa and worldwide by Goans. Konkani movies are eligible for the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Konkani.
