Ghai's Whistling Woods inducted as member of CILECT

MUMBAI: Whistling Woods International (WWI) was inducted as the youngest member of CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cin?ma et de T?l?vision) at the recently held 2010 CILECT Congress (an international association for the best film and television schools around the world) in Barcelona, Spain.

Though Whistling Woods International is only four years old, the institute was selected as the youngest member of the Association owing to the high standards of teaching.

Prior to the induction, CILECT vice president Victor Valbuena was sent by the CILECT Executive Council to assess the training standards of WWI. Coming back impressed with the curriculum, infrastructure and faculty, Valbuena recommended WWI?s induction to the Council. After the WWI presentation to the General Assembly of CILECT, WWI was unanimously elected.

CILECT membership would help Whistling Woods in fostering stronger international bonds with member film schools to facilitate exchange of faculty, student exchange, credit transfers, training material exchange, film festival participations, co-productions of students, etc.

Speaking on the occasion, Whistling Woods International Chairman Subhash Ghai reiterated WWI?s commitment to excellence in media education and said that he was proud that in such a short span of time, WWI has achieved international recognition that has taken other schools decades to achieve. ?We will continue with our efforts to ensure that students of Whistling Woods International get the best education and the industry gets the best students,? he added.

WWI has also been admitted as a member of CAPA, a sub-association of CILECT for the Asia Pacific Region where it is expected to play an important role.
