42nd Cambridge Film Festival Punt Awards

The Cambridge Film Festival is excited to announce the winners of this year's audience awards. Your votes have been counted, and the results reflect the films that resonated most with our festival-goers.

The Golden Punt Best Fiction Feature award goes to CREATURA, a compelling Spanish drama directed by Elena Martín Gimeno. The film, which explores a woman's journey through sexual awakening, has clearly connected with the CFF audience through its authentic storytelling and strong central performance.


PURE CLEAN WATER has been voted the Golden Punt Best Documentary Feature. Directed by Tony Eva, this documentary tackles the pressing issue of water scarcity in Cambridge and the potential impact on the city's future. It's a film that has sparked conversation and concern among audiences.


For the Crystal Punt Best Short Film, the winner is THE SNIP by Ben S. Hyland. This short film brings a mix of comedy and commentary on masculinity to the forefront, making a memorable impact on our audience with its relatable characters and narrative.
