Princess Cruises is pursuing the dramatic arts through a new partnership that will see Diamond Princess host the inaugural Travelling Film Festival.

Held in conjunction with the 62nd Sydney Film Festival, the festival will see passengers enjoy a selection of New Zealand produced films while crossing the Tasman during a 12-night roundtrip from Sydney to New Zealand.

It is Australia’s longest-running travelling film festival and provides audiences in regional areas with the opportunity to see world-class Australian and international films that they may not otherwise have had access to on the big screen.
