Oct 14 â€“ Cunard Line announces a new partnership with Variety, the leading publication for entertainment news, recognized and respected throughout the world of show business. During the annual award-show season, Cunard is supporting Varietyâ€™s Film Screening Series in Los Angeles and New York, open to industry executives and voting members of the various guilds and the Motion Picture Academy. After each screening Variety will conduct Q&A sessions with the filmsâ€™ director, writers, producers and/or cast members that will video stream on Variety.com and later play onboard Cunardâ€™s luxury ocean liners Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria. Variety and Cunard are working to develop similar Q&A programs onboard Queen Mary 2â€™s Transatlantic Crossings next year as part of Cunard Insights, the lineâ€™s award-winning guest enrichment program.
â€œAs operator of the most famous ocean liners in the world, Cunard has long been associated with Hollywoodâ€™s brightest stars â€“ from as far back as the Golden Age of Ocean Travel â€“ to todayâ€™s award-winning and celebrated actors, writers and directors who appreciate the civility of Transatlantic travel aboard Queen Mary 2,â€ said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line. â€œWe look forward to sharing Varietyâ€™s unique brand of entertainment news with our guests,â€ added Marlow.
Varietyâ€™s Screening Series in Los Angeles and New York will showcase at least 50 of the award show seasonâ€™s most anticipated films from the major and independent studios through the end of the year.
