One of the most prominent honours presented to professionals in the South Indian film industry, which encompasses the Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, and Kannada film industries, is the Filmfare Awards South.
These honours are a subset of the yearly Filmfare Awards given to the Hindi cinema industry’s efforts in the South Indian region. These are offered by The Times Group’s Filmfare magazine.
South Filmfare awards first time started
In 1954, in conjunction with the films released in 1952–1953, the Filmfare Awards South were established. To recognise the outstanding work of professionals in the films released in 1963, the awards were expanded in Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, and Marathi in 1964. Malayalam and Kannada cinema were added to the prizes in 1967 and 1970, respectively.
Prior to 1976, the Awards event and Hindi Awards were both held in Mumbai. The Southern area film awards, however, were separated from Hindi and relocated to Chennai after that. The record for the youngest winners of the Best Actor Award at the Filmfare Awards South belongs to Kamal Hasan and Uday Kiran.
Similar to the Filmfare Awards 2022, which were presented on August 30, 2022 at the Jio Convention Centre in Mumbai, the Filmfare Awards, South, which will honour movies released in 2020–2021, are celebrating their 67th anniversary this year. In December 2019 in Chennai, the (66th) Filmfare Awards South were presented.
South Filmfare Awards 2022 Date & Venue
It was the first time staged outside of Chennai when the famous Filmfare Awards South ceremony took place in Chennai in 1972. In 1973 and 1974, the event was once more held in Bombay.
After that, the ceremony began taking place regularly in Chennai starting with the 66th Filmfare Awards South, which was hosted in 1974. The Filmfare Awards South this year, however, are unique because Bangalore will serve as the site of the award presentation for the first time.
The date and location were announced in a post on the Filmfare official twitter account. The event will take place on October 9, 2022 at the Nice Junction, Tumkur Road, Bangalore International Exhibition Center.
