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.
