‘Reality Checkpoint’ to be screened at London Film Festival

I Will Tell Film Festival Logo
An abridged version of Reality Checkpoint – the Jubilee Centre’s short film exploring the big ideas which shape society – will have its first public screening in London on 2nd September at the ‘I Will Tell’ Film Festival’s short film evening.  This year’s Festival theme is The R Thing focusing on cinematic portrayals of human relationships in various contexts around the world.  The festival takes place between 30th August and 9th September at The Academy in Pimlico.

Tickets to all screenings are free and the organisers encourage those who can get to London for part or all of the festival to pick a film, take a friend and be challenged by incredible stories by talented film-makers from around the world!



A day in the life of young graduate Dave leads to encounters with the downside of two major philosophies at the personal level (individualism and consumerism) and two dominant ideologies at society level (capitalism and statism). After these four sketches the actors discuss an alternative way of thinking about society – one which puts relationships first.

We have made this film as a way of introducing Relational Thinking to new audiences. This is the framework which Jubilee Centre and its sister organisations (especially Relationships Foundation and Relationships Global) have developed over the years to translate the biblical vision for society into the secular, pluralistic context of public life in the 21st century.

The full length film is 23 minutes long, and we will shortly launch each of the five sections as stand-alone films of 4-6 minutes each, with a discussion guide at the end for individual reflection or as a resource for small groups.

The full feature can be seen here:
