Mr. Ben Gibson accepted the proposal made by Prof. Sandeep Marwah to consider the possibility of exchanging training material, faculty and students of the two film schools from time to time. They also agreed to exchange the films produced by the students of their respective schools too. LFS is a life member of the Noida Film City based International Film & Television Research Centre.
