FABL FAQ's ANSWERED:
WHAT ARE FABL FILMS?
Simply put, they are entertaining films meant to engage your students. Don’t think of them of films that “close the deal”. The aren’t meant to be preachy. They are illustrations. FABL films are intended to be used as a teaching tool that sets up a theme or idea, for example: “How do we live life to the fullest?” “What happens when we let tragedy and suffering define who we are?”. FABL films are meant to help engage your current students, as well as draw in new ones.
HOW IS FABL DIFFERENT?
One of our biggest objectives is to engage the students without getting eye-rolls. We focus on telling good stories that have natural, organic exploration of spiritual themes.
DO FABL FILMS PRESENT THE GOSPEL?
We love movies that have an overt Gospel message and are glad they exist. That being said, FABL takes a different approach. These films aren’t intended to play in a theatre. They are meant to be played in the context of a group or event where they can be explained and explored. Which, we hope, leads to a presentation of the Gospel from a leader or pastor. Some of our films might present the Gospel as a metaphor, some might just ask thought provoking questions. They are meant to challenge the students to think.
HOW ARE FABL FILMS BEST UTILIZED?
We’ve designed these films to be used in a variety of ways. Whether it’s a small group or large group, you can decide how it fits best for your group. For a large group, show the entire movie and then teach from the outline. Or break it up into episodes over a camp or retreat. For small groups, you can show the movie in full, or use the episodes. Then use the discussion questions in the FABL GUIDE and see where the Lord leads the discussion. We’ve seen first hand how powerful a tool these films can be for engaging students. Real life, real talk.
