Jeff Treves/TurkeyDec 14“I recognized it when the time came for the second ABC in 2010. This simple anecdote can tell you how effective the promotion for ABC is handled, even in its first year! ABC brings a new dimension to festival concept. It is everywhere, it is for everyone, and it is all about original ideas. ABC gives you the right amount of time to create your film, it gives you the right amount of limitations, it gives you the stimulating subjects and most importantly, ABC searches for that original idea regardless of whom it came from.

Eckhard Kruse / GermanyMay 07My 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, just a few images, no sound and then millions of people of different cultures are going to see it – with hopefully some of them getting an impression that lasts longer than 30 seconds. Well, it works: Months after the public screenings, by chance I met my ex-boss and the first thing he said was: “Recently, I was at Berlin airport and suddenly saw your 'fastest way' on some display. I liked it a lot!”
I now participate for the second time 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.
