The much-awaited Kerala State Film Awards 2017 was already declared in the month of March. For the much anticipated and much expected Kerala State Film Awards, around 110 movies were lined up in order to receive awards in this 2018.
The Cultural minister A K Balan declared Kerala State Film Awards at the Trivandrum at 12.30 pm and he mentioned that the jury, consisting of those like Dr. Biju, T V Chandran, Cherian Kalpakavadi and Dr. M Rajeev Kumar, wasn’t happy about the quality of the films for this year anyway.
58 films were of new directors, out of which one was a woman. 78 percent of the winners this time are debutantes who grabbed the Kerala State Film Awards.
