Exclusive pre-release access available for this fascinating new film through an exciting screening program for parishes, schools, other organizations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 19, 2012) - Parishes, schools and other organizations across the country have gained exclusive access to an exciting new educational and evangelization tool through the exclusive pre-release screening program for Cosmic Origins, the fascinating new film from Executive Producer Fr. Robert Spitzer and Ignatius Press.

The screening program is available in a variety of packages that include a one-year license to show the film, advance copies of the official Cosmic Origins DVD for sale or giveaway, and access to a downloadable companion study guide and other resources.

The film's official website - - is home to information on a variety of screening packages available now for the new documentary, which will not be available to the public until this fall. The website also includes the trailer, clips from the film and a variety of free downloadable resources for use in promoting the pre-release screening program.

"Very interesting and in-depth," said Zack Duckett of Pittsboro, Ind., who attended a recent leadership screening of Cosmic Origins. After another leadership screening in the Philadelphia area, Mike DiPietro of Lansdale, Pa., called the film "clear and well-balanced. Right on the money. Very well-done."

About the film
Has science really disproven the existence of God? No - but for generations many scientists have ignored the concept of creation because doing otherwise would raise the question ... of a Creator.
Today, however, we have compelling evidence - from science itself - for a beginning and fine-tuning of the universe. The insights are complementary, and that very fact provides evidence of a transcendent, intelligent Creator.

Cosmic Origins explores those insights. This fascinating, 49-minute film features Fr. Spitzer and a group of physicists and academic heavyweights exploring modern scientific theories about how the universe came to exist. Throughout the journey, viewers learn that modern scientific paths point toward a very Catholic understanding of how we came to be.
