The Next 150 is a dynamic project funded through a Canada Council for the Arts New Chapter grant that involves CP commissioning the production of several short films in order to launch a new film genre.

Two Canadian-based film organizations—VTape and Cinema Politica—are joining together to offer a program of films and video that challenge, disrupt and unsettle dominant narratives that have storied Canada on the occasion of the state’s sesquicentennial celebrations. The films are available for free streaming across the country for the duration of the "Canada Day" weekend (June 30-July 2).

Launched in 2012, Cinema Politica has teamed up with professional translators and language students to offer French and English versions of single-language films and videos, facilitating greater exposure of and access to art works made in one of Canada's two official languages.

In 2010 Cinema Politica initiated a program to support independent Canadian documentaries during the production stage, and before broadcasters and/or financiers have "come on board." In other words, we started Adopt-a-doc to offer our support to independent films struggling to get made in the very tough climate of documentary in Canada.
