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
For the seventh episode of New Activists of European Culture we take you to Tromsø in Norway during Insomnia festival where Srećko Horvat and Aslak Holmberg have a conversation about nomadism and identity.
We went to Košice in Slovakia for Art & Tech Days, an annual festival of media arts, technology and digital culture. We collected thoughts on artificial intelligence, giving voice to digital designers, entrepreneurs, creative directors, neurologists and artists, among others and we heard their opinions on how our lives are going to be affected by Artificial Intelligence.
New Activists of European Culture is a seven-episode-series that focuses on conversations between activists from Europe. Born from a partnership with We are Europe, which promotes, creates and produces 8 major European events. We travelled to Graz, Lyon, Barcelona, Cologne, Thessaloniki, The Hague and Tromsø to meet and give a voice to people from all over Europe about how you can be an activist in the most varied fields of work. You can watch all episodes February 28 on our TV channel.
A skater emerges from a burnt down forest in search of smooth concrete. A meditation on the transcendence of movement and action, in which each actor plays a version of themselves. You Know Where is directed by Jackson Kroopf and it was shot over one day with the same camera, lens and mic used to make American Honey.
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.
