Miranda Davidson Studios held its 2013 Actors Showcase last Wednesday at the Dubai Marine Beach Resort. This night was dedicated to the memory of local film pioneer Tim Smythe, who passed away last month, in honor of whom Davidson delivered a moving tribute speech backed by a video slideshow. The actors involved with the studio performed an assortment of film scenes, interspersed with talks by and chats with filmmakers and actors.
American Ambassador Michael H. Corbin made a surprise appearance, talking about how film is a significant export of his country, and how filmmakers are cultural ambassadors as a consequence.
