BFI to curate film programme for Cunard’s Queen Anne


A curated programme will be shown exclusively on the outdoor screen in The Pavilion

Luxury cruise line Cunard has teamed up with the British Film Institute to develop a curated programme of films for its newest ship Queen Anne, which will debut in May 2024.

As part of the three-year partnership, the BFI will show 10 films every month on both the outdoor LED screen in The Pavilion on the ship’s top deck and in guests’ staterooms.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with the BFI, with our shared dedication to providing immersive experiences aligning perfectly,” said Katie McAlister, president of Cunard. ““We have dedicated spaces for film enthusiasts across the fleet, and our new ship Queen Anne will boast even more big screen experiences for guests. Together with the BFI, we’ll strive to create unparalleled and unforgettable moments for film lovers.”

The partnership will also see Cunard be a main sponsor of the 67th BFI London Film Festival, in partnership with American Express, which runs from 4 to 15 October at venues across London, as well as nine UK-wide partner cinemas.

“We are thrilled to be working alongside Cunard on this partnership and are incredibly thankful for their support of the BFI and the BFI London Film Festival,” said Francesca Vinti, BFI executive director of fundraising and enterprise. “We are excited to be able to reach audiences in new inventive ways with amazing films and look forward to collaborating with Cunard over the next three years.”
