Let us tell you how our tv channel works
In depth articles and films that delve into social topics by amplifying independent new voices
LET US TELL YOU WHAT WE HAVE FOR FEBRUARY
Housing billions of people, apartment blocks made of prefabricated concrete panels are one of the most common buildings in the world. The exhibition 'Flying Panels – How Concrete Panels Changed the World' tells of the time when a concrete panel soaring across the sky symbolised the future and embodied dreams of a better world. Flying Panels is directed by Joaquin Mora.
WHEN I GET HOME
The extended director’s cut of Solange’s interdisciplinary performance art film “When I Get Home.” Solange: When I Get Home is directed by Solange Knowles with the contribuition of the directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori.
To mark the Sundance Film Festival we’re exhibiting the short horror film Knife Point, which premiered at the festival in 2009. The film, directed by by Carlo Mirabella-Davis, follows a family of evangelical christians traveling through upstate New York who give a ride to an unusual knife salesman.
C FOR COFFEE
When was the last time you stopped for a conversation? At a time when filmmakers have been discussing time, the lack of it, and the need to stop for it, we invite them to stop and talk; to each other. C for Coffee, a new series by Canal180 in collaboration with Porto/Post/Doc, provides a stage to a conversation that is free and unrestrained.
The 1st episode features Ute Aurand, Valérie Massadian, Gürcan Keltek and Ben Rivers.
HIGHLIGHTING WORLDWIDE CONTENT
MUSIC IS OUR RADAR
The only television channel in the world featuring music videos for an audience interested in new music.
Broadcasting a wide range of music sessions, from a bar in Alabama, We Have Signal to dj sets all over the world with Boiler Room. We’ve also partnered with Yours Truly and Red Bull Music Academy to feature films about the new music scenes.
Canal180 develops original content to provide insight on a new generation of music video directors, the DIRECTOR ID series. The series was developed as a partnership with Pitchfork, that also included the interview series, Entrevista.
A PLATFORM FOR NEW ARTISTS
Canal180 spotlights the roots of contemporary creativity by highlighting the thoughts and ideas of artists worldwide. From a series produced by international publishing house Gestalten, to the architecture world of ArchDaily, digital interview magazine Avant/Garde Diaries, the community of visual storytellers of The Creator Class or profiling Chilean visual artists in Gabinete.
The daily broadcast of Canal180 originals 180 Meets and MAG offer a glimpse of the network of artists we build over the year.
HOME OF SHORT FILMS
Nowadays the increasing conformity of mainstream films create a bland cinematic landscape. Short form was always seen as a source of a more experimental approach to filmmaking.
Over the years, Canal180 broadcasted the work of filmmakers, such as Mike Mills, Sean Dunne or Vincent Moon and highlighted young filmmakers, whose films featured in international film festivals, such as Venice, Berlin or Sundance.
REALITY GIVES CINEMA POWER
Having this in mind, Canal180 always had a special place for the films that question societies pivotal topics. The body of work of director Andreas Johnsen, in films like Inside Outside or Good Copy Bad Copy, was an incredible starting point and offered a different point of view. Topics like the depiction of the life cycles of cities, in films like Atlanta From the Ashes or St. Louis Rises, or the micro societies within a city in The Tables and the discussion about The Future of Cities, offer a platform for alternative ideas about the urban landscape.
Delving into more actual topics like the refugee crisis in Welcome to Canada, Eyes of Exodus, making portraits of youth in Room For Change or Swindon, or taking the audience through the night of the US Presidential elections in Election Night, helps us create an identity based on an authentic point of view of young independent new voices.
