"Keep it going, Keep it moving, Don't stop!"

Shiz Annual Red Carpet Events (SARCE) is the building of a collective of emerging and seasoned filmmakers who wish to bring a positive and entertaining spin to the world of cinema. We are open to filmmakers of all genres; to include documentaries, animations, comedy, horror, action, and human interest. It takes a lot of time, energy, money, and creativity to create. This event is to bring forth the hard work we put into our films.

This event will be our 3rd annual SARCE. In 2019, we will also be hosting the same event in Los Angeles, CA.

SARCE is hosted by Shiz, LLC and Evolve.Forward.Media Productions, LLC., a veteran and family owned production company. The organizers of SARCE are U.S. Army war veterans.

SARCE is devoted to all narrative films in all genres that are committed to diversity, authenticity, and show a conscious and curiosity of the world around us. Starting out as a red carpet event, we are now opening our commitment to community and collaboration to many filmmakers.

With the success of our first event, February 25, 2017, we feel that we can honor your hard work on a large silver screen in beautiful DCP 2K/4K format with 5.1 surround sound in a stadium seating theater in Kyle TX.

Along with local filmmakers and film festival organizers, we are building a community. We want to bring everyone together to meet and greet, and enjoy the wonderful talent we have here in Central Texas. We do, however, accept films from around the world.

Overall Rating
  • Antonio & Serenity do a fantastic job of curating a memorable festival experience. They are very communicative & passionate about film. I was unable to attend due to shooting obligations, but they still reached out & updated me on the screening, reception, & highlights!

    Thank you so much for the great review. People loved your music video. Dora was there to see it on the large screen. Wish you could have been there. It was an honor to show your video on the big screen.
