MIPTV Spotlight: Canal Futura


CANNES: At this year’s MIPTV, Canal Futura is presenting two new hour-long documentaries that deal with issues of human rights: Going Back and Armed.

For children, the company is offering the animated series The Adventures of Teca. The program features themes of friendship, family, personal health and playfulness, and addresses them in a way that is fun for young viewers.

Canal Futura is aiming to expand its reach by building new contacts with stations in Latin America. “The European market also interests us, especially Portuguese-language countries, with which we have a very strong connection,” says Lúcia Araújo, the director of Canal Futura.

“Our programming is dedicated to promoting ethnic and racial equality, community spirit, entrepreneurship and cultural pluralism, combining education and entertainment,” says Araújo.
