Big Sky Film Festival Presents “Paradise Without People”

The Montana Media Lab proudly partners with the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival’s DocShop each year to host panels and presentations by top documentary filmmakers and producers in the industry.

In February 2020, TIME Studios presented at the Montana Media Lab on their ground-breaking documentary Paradise Without People. TIME Studios director Francesca Trianni and producer Justine Simons discussed how they approached the story of two Syrian refugee families and how they took that story from print to screen.

The documentary team documented developments daily on Instagram and worked with to create an interactive supplemental piece called, Finding Home.
