POLITICS OF
DANCING

Following a few months of exploring the We Are Europe festival circuit, Canal180 takes you to Cologne during CoPop to present you the brand new episode of New Activists of European Culture, a series that focuses on conversations between activists.

SHORTEST DAY -

In the shortest day of the year and in collaboration with Agência da Curta Metragem, Canal180 is airing only short films all day.

HIGHLIGHTING WORLDWIDE CONTENT

Background

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.

Canal180 gives insight on social topics by amplifying creative independent new voices.


Next release will be
The Politics of Dancing, part of New Activists of European Culture series

recorded at The Hague, September 2018
