Roland Schlimme has been collaborating with leading independent filmmakers for the past twenty years. As an editor, he continues to focus on unscripted, non-fiction features. His formal sensibility and intuitive touch can be recognized in the works of Peter Mettler (Gambling, Gods, and LSD, The End of Time), Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes, Long Time Running), Phillip Barker (Night Vision, Malody, Shadow Nettes).


Working primarily in his studio in Toronto, his film work has taken him to Montréal, Victoria, New York, Buenos Aires, and Switzerland.


In addition to editing, his credits include sound design, music composition, animation, and production, reflecting an enthusiasm and expertise that spans the technical and creative aspects of a process that is both intimate and industrial.


Roland is an active mentor to emerging filmmakers and editors, delivering lectures and workshops, and consulting on independent projects. In 2012, he inaugurated the Creative Editing and Sound course at Ryerson University, developing the curriculum and teaching undergraduates in Film Studies.
