The non-profit association known as the Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision (CILECT) was formed at Cannes in May 1955, with the participation of the film school delegates from Czechoslovakia, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, United Kingdom, USA, and USSR. CILECT also is known as the International Association of Film and Television Schools.

CILECT believes in the inherent inter-connectivity of humankind and fully supports creativity, diversity, cross-cultural thinking, and sustainable development as fundamental prerequisites to human existence and progress. It is committed to developing and promoting the highest standards of education, research, and training for film, television, and related media through establishing and organizing global and regional forums for the exchange of artistic, pedagogical, methodological, and managerial best practices for all its members.
