LET US TELL YOU WHAT WE HAVE FOR JANUARY
Cineclube is a cinema session that takes place every Wednesday at 10pm on Canal180, presenting new and diverse films within the documentary and experimental cinema. In January, the program is dedicated to Colectivo Fotograma 24, divided into two sessions: the screening of the filme Wolfram, A Saliva do Lobo and a session of short films created and curated by Fotograma 24.
THE SHAPE OF YOU
I KNOW COMPLETELY
The Shape Of You I Know Completely is a short film that explores the thoughts and ideas behind Austra's fourth record “HiRUDiN." Based on a conversation with Anupa Mistry (journalist and writer) and Sebastian Kvist (curator of Invertebrates), the film is directed by Trevor Blumas and shot between Toronto and Montreal during various stages of COVID-19 lockdown.
A collection of thoughts on 180 Media Academy topic. 180 Media Academy gathered non-conformist talents in a programme that aimed to rethink media formats and subjects. This complementary education programme offered a transdisciplinary and wide-reaching perspective for the discussion of new themes. The event took place mostly online and included a series of masterclasses, talks, screenings and a project development.

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.
