Key objectives of the measure:

Created in 2011, the CePIA is aimed at promoting and disseminating Argentine cultural productions, through different audiovisual formats,  on the conviction that audiovisual media are "highways" of culture. Our intention is for the CePIA to serve as a facilitator for these highways, and, to this end, we work hard to feed all National State television signals with our contents. 

Scope of the measure:
National
Main feature of the measure:

We make documentaries, and cultural and political documentary series, with an extensive social, federal and Latin American approach, especially aimed at stirring up popular interest and representing an invitation to debate and national thinking. Our work focuses on promoting and rescuing our identity, historical memory, debate of ideas, human rights and citizenship building, since in our opinion disseminating these types of cultural contents is the best contribution we can make for all Argentinians, to continue growing as individuals and, thus, as a nation.
On the other hand, as members of the Advisory Board of Digital TV, all our productions are assigned to the Banco Audiovisual de Contenidos Universales Argentino (BACUA), where they are digitally stored to create a federal space for audiovisual exchange. The BACUA, searches, organizes, digitalizes and socializes audiovisual contents reflecting the cultural diversity of our territory, democratizing the access to contents to promote dialogue nationwide, and, in this sense, we are proud to be partakers and actors, and contribute with our contents.

Financial resources allocated to implement the measure:
