About CEM

Cultural & Educational Media (CEM) is a non-profit media group producing films, TV series, and web-based programming that promote new insights on the meaning and depths of human existence.


CEM uses the power of film and storytelling to inspire, bring together, and unify people and audiences worldwide.


GEM symbol


“CEM” is also a powerful concept in several other languages - pronounced, “GEM” in Turkish and “Jama” in Arabic and Farsi. The root “CEM/JAM”, as a verb, means “to bring together” or “to Unite.” As a noun, CEM/JAM means “a gathering” or “a community that has been brought together.”


The concept “Unity Consciousness” has been the focus of our work and the core of our mission since the establishment of CEM in 1983. CEM’s programs weave timeless wisdom traditions and cultural nuances together with 21st century scientific discoveries and understandings about the nature of “Us and Them” to promote understanding and respect among peoples, cultures and faiths worldwide.


We invite you to explore CEM’s exceptional library of award-winning programming with unique and compelling human stories, memorable characters, knowledgeable teachers, and intimate and insightful journeys into different cultures, wisdom traditions, and worldviews.


To further fulfill on this promise of bringing communities together, CEM is now combining web-based distribution with social networking and traditional television broadcast to engage new audiences worldwide.
