Caroline Côté is an adventure filmmaker and photographer living in Montreal. Its main role during expeditions is to bring back images in order to present them to the public in a documentary format. One of the last to be completed is the story of a team that travelled through an unexplored region of Antarctica for 30 days. Caroline Côté was part of this great crossing.
She also recently participated in the Pull of the North expedition, where she followed the Yukon River for more than two months and traveled through Alaska to meet the First Nations of the region.
Caroline Côté has just returned from northern Quebec where she went to meet the Inuit, a subject that is highlighted in a trailrunning documentary called Qamaniq currently on a world festival tour.
Filming in natural places, far away or in extreme conditions, is her passion and her specialty. You can meet her on the Atlantic coast or at the top of Mount Washington with her camera or in the forest, because she loves to run in altitude (65 km, 85 km or 125 km). She might say that being an adventure filmmaker is only a title that can be put on a CV, but according to her, it represents much more.
What inspires her to do this job is to share inspiring stories. Her mission is to engage people to learn more about the subject of nature conservation and about surpassing oneself. She underwent comprehensive training at the Banff Center, Alberta, to perfect her technique and capture and inform the highlights in a powerful way. She also trained in advertising at UdeM and completed studies in the field of cinema and communication.
