Cunard announces three-year partnership with the British Film Institute for Queen Anne

Valencia, California., September 21, 2023 /CNW/ — Cunard has teamed up with the British Film Institute (BFI) in a new and exclusive partnership that will create buzz with film fans ahead of the launch of the line’s newest ship, Queen Anne.

The luxury cruise line has announced a three-year partnership with the UK’s leading film, TV and motion picture organisation. The collaboration will see a curated program of shorts and cult films screened exclusively on the outdoor screen in The Pavilion on board Queen Anne.
