Date uploaded: August 13, 2014

NOW YOU SEE ME! is an International Public Art Short Film Competition, initiated by Artists for Public Art 1777 and their project partners. APA1777 have announced an open call for the submission of short films that will enable the general public to discover the world of Public art around them. The project aims to raise awareness of public art in urban life, to make works of Art more visible and to create a stronger affinity between the public and public Art.

The Open Call brief

  • What is Public Art?
  • Do you live near a work of public art?
  • Can you see one from your bedroom window?
  • Do you pass by one on your way to work?
  • Is there one you like in particular?

If the answer is yes, submit a short film about it! Click here for an application.

If the answer is no, find one and then submit a short film about it!

All the films submitted will be accessible on a dedicated internet site and judged by a jury of internationally-acclaimed film makers and artists will choose the best ten films. These films will be screened at the Louvre museum as part of its prestigious Journées internationales du Film sur l’art (International Days of Art Films) in January 2015. They will then be shown in film festivals around the world.

The jury is comprised by world renowned artists and film makers and is presided by Wim Wenders.
