Carol Dalrymple is an Emmy-award winning filmmaker whose work explores stories that change our perception of the world and of each other.
With PBS affiliate KUED, she has edited, produced, and directed over 50 feature length and short documentary films on rotation in the PBS national, pledge, and regional schedule. Her work with KUED has garnered twelve Emmy Awards.
Carol founded Edge of Discovery, a non-profit media arts initiative whose mission is to discover and amplify voices and stories that traditionally have been silenced, simplified and minimized, using media technologies. In partnership with the Western Folk Life Center, the Deep West program connects established filmmakers with students in rural and indigenous communities in the West United States to support storytelling that breaks through misconceptions, preserves history and builds community.
Her current work explores new dimensions of immersive and interactive storytelling, using virtual and augmented reality. She was selected by Facebook's Virtual Reality company, Oculus, for their inaugural Launch Pad Program, a mentorship program designed to support promising Content Creators and Developers. With the Interspace Collective she is using XR and physical space to explore what ancient folklore means in a world facing climate change. Independently, she is developing an augmented and virtual reality public art project exploring the contribution of women throughout history.
Her work has been seen on PBS, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, ESPN, and Fox Sports. Additional awards include the Society of Professional Journalists Gold Award for Best Documentary, the Cine Golden Eagle Awards of Excellence in Film and Media, National Educational Telecommunications Association, Gold, Silver, and Platinum Awards from the Utah Broadcasters Association, and an Award of Recognition issued jointly by the State of Utah Department of Community and Culture and the Utah Division of Indian Affairs.
