Lights! Camera! Tuxedos! Join the Buskirk-Chumley Theater for its fourth annual celebration of film. A Red Carpet Affair includes a regional short film competition, the official red carpet coverage, and the Academy Awards ceremony on the big screen. Your best red carpet attire is welcome but not required to enjoy the party. Either way, you’ll want to make sure to stop by the photo booth at some point in the evening.

Your ticket provides you with a buffet of savory and sweet items and a complimentary beer, wine, or soft drink. Additional beverages will be available for purchase. All attendees of A Red Carpet Affair must purchase a ticket.

Vote for your favorite short film in this regional competition. Films are no longer than five minutes and feature the culture, landscape, and lifestyle of the Midwest. Films are curated by a panel of local judges.

Are you a film maker? We welcome film submissions from pros and dabblers by February 5th.

Red Carpet Coverage
Who will you wear? Watch the stars walk the red carpet, listen as they chat about film, and decide who’s wearing the most fabulous outfit.

Academy Awards
The awards ceremony begins at 8:30 and we’ll be there until the last statuette is awarded (usually between 11:30pm and 12:30am).

Doors will open at 6pm for this general admission event.
