Mission to Hollywood | 2000
An interfaith religious special that explores the different paths being taken by two groups dedicated to encouraging screenwriters to express their convictions in their work. The program visits a workshop in Los Angeles, conducted by ACT One: Writing For Hollywood, which trains neophyte writers to apply moral Christian values to their scripts so that the end product, religious or secular, will reflect an ennobling view of life. The special also focuses on the group that is known for the Humanitas Awards. The Human Family and Educational and Cultural Institute awards these prizes annually to films and teleplays that affirm human dignity, probe the meaning of life and celebrate common humanity. Humanitas also conducts workshops and seminars for writers who want to write meaningfully and market their work to the studios.
