What is Art by Chance

Color everyday life and inspire people!

Inspired by a moment of contemplation in an Istanbul metro station, since 2009 Art By Chance create opportunities to color everyday life and inspire people to make short films.

The festival takes place simultaneously in
more than 20 + countries, 200+ cities worldwide.

We love you too

My first thought about Art By Chance: 30 seconds, wow, that's really short -even for filmmakers who do only short films! But then, it's also the ultimate story-telling challenge. One idea, continue...me and I am very happy to have made it again into the selection. I really like to congratulate the Art By Chance Team for their great work and for this unique concept.

"We're kind of excited by this idea: The Art By Chance Film Festival celebrates "ultra-short films" by presenting them to us in unexpected, non-theatrical venues: Movies might continue...igital screens scattered throughout the city. And not just our city.. Plus, the films, predicated on the theme of "journeys" and under a minute long, are fascinating little works."

Jury selected films shown on screens at airports, public plazas, metro stations, restaurants and bars, campuses, and shopping malls. Selected as one of the coolest festivals by the Movie Maker Magazine, Art By Chance is one of the biggest public art events in the world.

We aim to balance the onslaught of commercial advertising in public spaces with art that inspires the public to reflect and create.
We believe public spaces should house something more interesting, entertaining and inspiring for the public.
