Not Channel Zero Goes to War video will be part of Signals: How Video Transformed the World at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

Not Channel Zero was a video series produced by Black Planet Productions, a New York City-based video collective of African American video artists formed in the early 1990s. It combined alternative television style with a critique of commercial media, using low-end, accessible technology and extremely small budgets, sometimes only fifty dollars. For three years, the collective produced regular programming for Manhattan Cable Access on the anti-war movement, homophobia in communities of color, police brutality, sexism, and urban issues in Black and Latino communities. Revising the famous Gil Scott Heron phrase, their motto was "The Revolution, Televised," asserting they were making "grassroots, Afrocentric television aiming at politics, culture, and re-education." The collective adopted Afrocentric style, form, and content, bringing hip hop strategies of slow motion, fast forwarding, and repetition to their videos as they appropriated commercial media images.

Black Planet Production was founded by Thomas Poole, George Sosa and Cyrille Phipps, and members included Jacqueline Dolly, Donna Golden, Mark Aubert, Joan Baker and Art Jones.
The OutMuseum presents a collection of archival videos celebrating the legacy of the New York City ballroom scene, brought to life through the incredible preservation work of Old School Ballroom. Created by TWN Workshop graduate Felix Rodriguez, Old School Ballroom pays homage to the ballroom community from the 1990s and beyond.
The OutMuseum presents Dancing with Pride: Short Film Collection, a series of film works from all over the world centering on dancing as an element through which Queer and Trans characters express and explore their own identities. Curated by Shu Wang, TWN's Distribution & Exhibition Associate.
Third World Newsreel (TWN) is an alternative media arts organization that fosters the creation, appreciation, preservation and dissemination of independent film and video by and about people of color and social justice issues.

The TWN Workshop will receive support from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) in 2022-2023.
