B] In 2010, WWI was accepted as a full member of the CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision), a global association of film schools, with very high standards on admitting members. This has readied the plans for student & faculty exchange programmes with the best film schools in the world.

This is the only centre that they have established in association with another organization, the first two (in LA & London) being standalone centres. On account of the SMTC, WWI students will now make 3D films as part of their curriculum, apart from having access to the best high definition camera in the world – the Sony F35.
