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 20 + countries, 200 + cities worldwide.

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.

We love you too
