Filmi qawwali (, ) is a form of qawwali music found in the Lollywood and Bollywood film industries.

It represents a distinct sub-genre of film music, although it usually bears little resemblance to traditional qawwali, which is the devotional music of the Sufis. One example of filmi qawwali is the song Pardah Hai Pardah sung by Mohammed Rafi, and composed by Laxmikant-Pyarelal.

Within the sub-genre of filmi qawwali, there exists a form of qawwali that is infused with modern and Western instruments, usually with techno beats, called techno-qawwali. An example of techno-qawwali is Kajra Re, a filmi song composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy.

Recently, A.R. Rahman has composed filmi qawwalis in the style of traditional qawwali. Examples include Arziyan (Delhi 6) and Khwaja Mere Khwaja (Jodhaa Akbar).
