Is Jesus really God?
Did Mary Magdalene birth his child?
Is The Da Vinci Code book/movie a dangerous challenge to the Christian faith, a ripe opportunity or both?
Are you prepared to answer these questions and more?
With over 42 million copies in print, The Da Vinci Code is a runaway bestseller, but are the so-called facts in this book truth...or are they fiction?
The novel is written as fact, but on Tuesday, April 11, international authors and speakers JOSH MCDOWELL, MARK SHEA, CRAIG DETWEILER AND CRAIG SMITH explain the truth behind this popular story.
Inter-Mission, Mastermedia International and Act One are inviting entertainment professionals, as well as the general public for this rare opportunity.
SEE BARBARA NICOLOSI IN ARIZONA AND INDIANA!

SHORT FILM PROJECT UNDERWAY
Act One is pleased to announce that producers for the Peter Glenville Short Film Project have been selected. Anna Littles (Writing Program, L.A. 2002) will produce PIE 'N' BURGER, from a screenplay written by Clare Sera (Writing Program, L.A., 1999). Monica Jimenez-Grillo and Thomas Deason (both from the Executive Program, L.A. 2005) will produce THE PHILANTHROPISTS, from a screenplay written by Douglas McKelvey (Writing Program, Washington, D.C., 2004).
Named after the late director/filmmaker, Peter Glenville who was known for a number of highly acclaimed films including “Becket” and “The Comedians,” the Peter Glenville Short Film Program’s primary goal is to give a group of Act One alumni the opportunity to be involved in the production process from concept to distribution. The secondary goal is to produce two laudable, well-produced short films, which will be entered into film festival competitions around the world.
NEW INTERNSHIP FOR EXECUTIVE PROGRAM
The Executive Program is pleased to announce that Guy Walks Into A Bar (Elf) has joined the list of top Hollywood entities accepting interns from our program this summer.
