Looking for Work Worldwide
Teresa Carante completed a MA in Social Anthropology and volunteered in several NGOs before embracing her passion for documentary filmmaking.
Her short documentary, I’m Coming Home, screened at Antenna Film Festival 2015 and won a Gold-Remi at World Fest-Houston. Blue Chameleon, her first documentary was awarded the best director at the California Film Awards 2014.
In 2020 she made the documentary series Through Their Eyes highlighting the bond between six humans and six animal species (available on Qantas inflight entertainment and DocPlay online streaming platform).
Teresa is currently directing her first long form documentary, Mother Crocodile, for which she received development fundings from ABC Australia.
In Vietnam Teresa filmed two short documentaries for Fight Dog Meat and Animals Asia raising awareness around the work they do protecting animals in the country. While freelancing as videographer for RICE Content & Media, Teresa got the opportunity to DOP VICE NEWS's documentary web series "Inside the Global Underground Wildlife Trafficking Market"- covering the segment in Vietnam.
Extremely interested in the human-nature relationship, Teresa is often working on projects exploring the interaction between these two realms.
Born a traveller, Teresa has lived in 12 countries and has learned to speak different languages. With a very adaptable, resilient and open-minded predisposition, Teresa is working her way up to become a travel documentary filmmaker.
