Movies and TV shows are a great way to educate individuals on history and knowledge that has long been kept from us. The faculty and staff at the World Academy for Innovation & Entrepreneurship (WAIE) have compiled a list of film recommendations for our young scholars to watch throughout their time in our community. However, we wanted to provide access to some of those media recommendations to the greater community at large. We invite you to watch the film recommendations below to learn more about the beliefs, customs, and mission of WAIE. 

Through our WAIE Online platform, we will keep an up to date list of film recommendations for the community to enjoy. We have listed out the order in which you should watch our movies, TV shows, and media recommendations. However, when we add a new piece of media we will highlight that media in green for the duration of one week from its original posting date so you can find it easily. If you have media recommendations you believe the leadership at WAIE should look at then please submit film recommendations.
