Reel Dialogue

Engaging with films without disengaging faith

Reel Dialogue is a creative dialogue between the Christian faith and entertainment culture, with people discovering how common ground can be forged with story tellers, image shapers, and culture makers.

In essence, Reel Dialogue facilitates engagement with films without disengaging people's faith — discussion, engagement and interaction with one another help to bridge the gap between faith and culture.

TV and films are very powerful ways to tell a story and reflect cultural values, ethics and morals.

On this site there are downloadable discussion guides and links that have all the tools groups need to reflect on, discuss and discover what spiritual truth often resides in popular films.

City Bible Forum's Reel Dialogue aims to engage and equip people with creative dialogue between faith and culture.
