KOCHI: The Eastern Chemmeen International Short Film Awards-2016, organised by the Global Initiative for Excellence (GIE), has invited entries for competition.  “Short films are the current rage among both young and elderly citizens across the world. Besides appealing to these target groups, the medium has another focus category to deal with - transgender issues,” said GIE executive director Joe A Scaria at press conference here.

The Best Film will receive a cash prize of `1 lakh. The other awards are Best Actor/Actress, Best Director, Best Editor, Best Cinematography, Best Script and Popular Film.
