The Kerala State Film Awards are the film awards for a motion picture made in Kerala. The awards have been bestowed by Kerala State Chalachitra Academy since 1998 on behalf of the Department of Cultural Affairs, Government of Kerala, India.

The awards were started in 1969. From 1969 to 1997, the awards were managed directly by the Department of Cultural Affairs, Government of Kerala.
