Day Two of the Middle East Film and Comic Con 2017

It’s a wrap on Day Two of the Middle East Film and Comic Con 2017and boy what a day it has been! From meeting with Liam Cunningham and Kane to listening to an inspiring talk by the Falcon himself, we really did pull out all the stops!


The huge announcement of a partnership of Dubai Clusters Authority with Youtube to support VIDXB 2017 in collaboration with The Alliance took place at the press conference this afternoon.

The press conference saw celebrity guests Anthony Mackie, Greg Grunberg, Cas Anvar on the panel alongside Kane and Liam Cunningham. There was also an exclusive Meet the Stars Signing session with Pooja Batra, Tarek and Mohammed Al Aribi.


The cosplay competition was a great way to end the evening! Crowds witnessed massive comic con fans dressed up as their favorite cosplayers in various categories and genres including ‘Best play-station cosplay’ and ‘Best Manga/Anime character’ to name a few.


Other highlights from Day 2 included:

  • This was the day the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) landed and gave an inspiring talk. With a highly successful and versatile career, Mackie has a huge following in the Middle East and with good reason too.
  • Kane otherwise known as The Big Red Monster and best known for his wrestling antics mingled with the audience
  • A master at his craft, Cas Anvar, the voice of Altair in the best-selling video game Assasin’s Creed shared tips on how to become a voice actor at ‘Throwing Your Voice’.
  • Known to have won and judged several cosplay competitions, professional cosplayer Nicole Marie Jean hosted a fun and insightful workshop giving advice to the young and aspiring.
  • Award-winning independent filmmaker Faisal Hashmi interacted with up and coming talents in the field of cinematography at his workshop


Tomorrow look forward to the following:

  • Visitors will have the opportunity to spot the cast of upcoming movie including Pooja Batra, ‘One under the sun’! Don’t miss out on ‘The Onion Knight’ with Liam Cunningham and a chance to catch Josh McDermott of ‘The Walking Dead’
  • Cas Anvar will be sharing experiences from his varied career while fans can also revive childhood memories and have their questions answered from Arabic singer and song writer Tarek AlAribi and Mohammad AlAribi
